Fall 2020

  • Queen Sophia – Mary did not like these although they bloomed ok and more in the fall than spring or summer. Blooms were 1-1.5″ rather than the 2-2.5″ advertised by Johnny’s.
  • French Marigold, Lemon Drop – (Tagetes patula) 55 days. Bloomed great all summer. Powerfully scented 10-20 in. tall plants with lots of 1 in. bright yellow blooms. Petals and leaves are edible, leaves taste very similar to Peruvian huacatay and can be used as a substitute for parsley. 
  • Marigold Durango Tangerine
