- Leaves are feathery, toothed, divided and fragrant.
- The African marigold has larger flowers than the French. The number of flowers in the french type are more.
- Flower heads are large and can be anywhere from 3 to 5 inches across.
- Branching plant are 1 to 6 feet high depending on the variety.
Growing tips:
- Full sun to semi shade. Plants are much more compact and bloom much more in full sunlight.
- Plant in well fertilized soil.
- Give regular water during hot and dry weather.
- Plants should be planted at 30 x 30 cms for dwarf varieties and upto 100 x 100 cms for tall bushy ones.
- If the preperation is good the bloom will last for many months.
- Potted plants have become quite popular. Instead of getting flowers everyday for long festivals like Ganesh or Diwali or Durga Puja - or a marriage in the family - people prefer to grow or get marigolds in pots. These can be placed all over the house - to make the sorroundings colorful and festive.
