Tagetes patula - French Marigold -  Sparky Mixed

This is a listing for a generous pack of 1000 seeds.

This is a showy annual, originally from Mexico, but widely hybridised in order to improve the performance of the plant in all conditions. It grows to 30 cm tall with a spread of 45 cm.  Sparky is a standard height French Marigold with unusual flowers which have lax, fluted petals giving the appearance of a much larger flower than is normally seen in French Marigolds.  It produces a succession of colourful blooms either in single shades or bicolors throughout the summer, even from a late sowing.  It will flower all summer long, especially if spent blooms are regularly removed so the plant continues to put all its efforts into flowers rather than seeds.

Use in mass bedding or as dot plants in amongst other annuals.  It can also be used in containers and is fairly tolerant of neglect with a degree of drought tolerance due to its Mexican origins.

Like all Marigolds, it is very much pest free and actively deters aphids which is why it is often used as a 'companion plant' to vegetables and ornamentals that aphids find attractive.
