Experience planting annuals deep?

Mobile, AL

I recently had a large order of marigolds stay in the pots too long before planting. They were very full but also very leggy. I was wondering how they would do if I planted them deeper than the top of the root ball - maybe 3" deeper. They have lots of aerial roots. I know they would look good for a little while but has anyone had experience with planting marigolds or other annuals purposely deep?
