A Colour Essentials selection!

Full, rounded, 3.75-in. (9-cm) blooms are packed tight with petals – this excellent flower form ensures that plants stand up to Botrytis and perform superbly outdoors. Extra-sturdy stems won’t break in shipping or during poor weather conditions. Like most African-type marigolds, Marvel initiates flowering faster under short days, with blooming as short as 60 days from sowing.
