Gypsy Sunshine Marigold forms huge mounds with yellow orange blooms when given full sun in good soil. Mine are much taller than 12" and still blooming in zone 6 at the end of September. When I sprinkled a few seeds into the soil, I had no idea that they would grow so vigorously! They provide such a good Fall display that I am giving up buying Mums which never seem to survive our winters.
