Cottage Red Marigold
Penn's favorite Marigold of all time.
Long-stemmed red marigolds are of great help in the vegetable garden. They are tall enough to tower over tall vegetables like potatoes or broccoli. Beautiful Marigold 'trees' branch dozens of deep red blooms to brighten any spot in the garden. Bees love 'em.
Makes a great cut flower. Stems are red too. Easy to grow from seed or starts.
Marigolds are the workhorses of the vegetable garden and protect the garden from the bugs we don't want while attracting the ones we do.
