Tagetes patula

 

65 days to maturity

 

Low growing and covered in large multicolored blooms, this marigold is a winner for companion planting and attracting beneficial and predatory insects to the garden.  Topping out at less than a foot tall, Colossus pairs well with vegetables without overwhelming the food crops.  The bright yellow and red petals stand out in a crowd!  Also a prolific seed producer so you’ll harvest plenty of easy to pick seeds to share with your community.  Start indoors 4 weeks before last frost and transplant out or direct sow after the last frost.
