About French Marigold Seeds - Fireball

Tagetes patula

Seed Type Hybrid Seed
Plant Type Zowie

Highly valued for its vibrant, multicolored blooms, Fireball French Marigold is a compact, bushy annual featuring double flowers measuring up to three inches across. Initially opening in a striking red hue, these blossoms transform into fiery bronze, deep orange, and ultimately settle into a rich dark gold shade as they mature. Both the flowers and foliage emit a spicy fragrance that has been utilized as a natural pest, rabbit, and deer deterrent for generations. From spring until the onset of frost, the showy flowers generously adorn the finely divided aromatic foliage.
