Tagetes erecta, African Marigold - Seward, Alaska - September 2002
Cream colored Marigolds
Private garden in Phoenix, AZ, zone 9b.
Marigolds seem to flourish with little care.
Close up of the leaves.
Notice the little 'bumps' near the serration. This could help in IDing your marigold.
Close, close-up from the side.
Ode to a flower!
Abundant yellow and gold African Marigolds, topped three feet easily in two months
I recently planted these African Marigolds 'Tagetes erecta' that I got from Lowe's
This is two plants, started from seed, not at their full height (about 3-4 ft tall here). KS, enriched soil.
