Marigold, Tangerine Gem (Organic)

Tagetes tenuifolia. 60-65 days.

Tiny, orange, edible, marigold flowers form on dwarf plants that do well in containers. A cheerful little bedding plant, looks great when planted densely. Blooms all summer long right up until frost, and is highly attractive to pollinators and other beneficial insects. Lovely citrusy scent is fun to experiment with in the kitchen, although flavor is on the spicy side, or simply use leaves or petals as a garnish. Signet type.

Seed produced by Avoca in Corvallis, Oregon.
