These are some of the most popular annual flowers on earth. The marigold group called “Crackerjack Mix” has decorated millions of gardens for decades. These are the big ones–bright ball-shaped flowers in yellow and orange or sturdy plants 2-3 ft. tall. The flowers are chrysanthemum-like with a mass of bright colored petals. And best of all, they keep blooming all summer long. Add these to your meadow, and the color will never stop. Marigolds never go out of style! If you want a large flowering marigold, Crackerjack is a superior variety with a mounding form, consistent height, and sturdy flower stalks. Majestic 4″ blooms in tangerine orange, rich gold, and lemony yellow will brighten up your flower bed, path edges, and large container plantings. They make radiant long-lasting cut flowers and are easy to grow from seed. For a dazzling contrast, plant next to blue or dark purple flowers such as Salvia, Alyssum Oriental Nights, Bachelor Button Black Magic, or Hollyhock The Watchman. Deer resistant. Easy to grow and they repel harmful nematodes in your soil. Special Instructions: Deadhead continually to keep them blooming all summer long!
