African Marigold Seeds - Mandarin

Most African Marigolds need no introduction, their large flowers on tall, sturdy stems usually sell themselves! Perfect for cutting, in some regions African Marigolds are commonly associated with Dia De Los Muertos celebrations, in others, they are appreciated simply as a lively pop of color in any garden design or cut flower arrangement. Mandarin offers extra large, double flowered stems in a cheerful, bold orange hue.
