This is my favorite marigold also. Very elegant. It self sows. One year I ended up with several very nice looking plants growing in the driveway cracks. It looks nice next to dusty miller and blue petunias.

This year (2009) is the first year I've grown this.

Its my new favorite marigold. It always looks great and the reddish flowers with a thin orange/yellow picotee are beautiful floating above the nice clean green foliage.
