Very pretty, and very easy to grow from seed. Attracts butterflies. Will definitely grow again.

Very fragrant and I love the "wispiness" of the foilage. Low heighth makes it perfect to plant in front of taller things and see blooms for a long period of time.

This marigold offers both an airy foliage and a spicy lemony aroma. I find it to be the most aromatic of the signets.
