EXCLUSIVE – Our charming tricolor mix of old-fashioned signet marigolds lights up your garden with single blossoms that literally cover the softly mounding plants. Great as an edging, along a narrow walkway or to decorate window boxes and planters, these flower powerhouses have an aromatic lemon verbena-like scent, unlike common marigolds. Adorn your garden all summer with the sparkle of their dainty flowers in our blend of bright paprika, rich gold and clear lemon yellow.
Seed Count: Approx. 180 / Weight: 0.185 gms
ANNUAL: Summer/fall bloom, Frost tender
TO START DIRECTLY IN THE GARDEN: Sow seeds in a well-worked seed bed in full sun when danger of frost is past and weather is warm and above 50°F (10°C) both day and night. Space seeds 3 inches apart in rows 12 inches apart, cover about 1⁄2 inch deep and gently firm soil. Keep soil evenly moist while awaiting germination.
TO START EARLY INDOORS: Four to five weeks before last frost date, sow seeds 1/2 inch deep and 3 inches apart in a container of seed starting mix. Keep warm and moist and provide a strong light source until seedlings are ready to plant outside when temperatures rise above 50°F (10°C) day and night.
THIN OR TRANSPLANT: Space seedlings 12 inches apart when large enough to handle to give plants room to mature and provide good air circulation.
GROWING NOTES: For large and abundant flowers, thin before seedlings get crowded; adequate spacing and regular, even watering helps plants productive and discourages mildew. Pick when flower blossoms first open and petals are tight for longest vase life.
