Harvested from the gardens at Monticello.
The species French Marigold was introduced to European gardens from South America in the late 16th century. A handsome striped form of this annual flower was first illustrated in the London-based periodical Curtis' Botanical Magazine, 1791, and was being grown in America by that time. Striped French Marigold is perfect for cutting, with flowers that vary from yellow streaked with maroon to solid yellow and occasionally all red; prune and deadhead to prolong flowering.

Sow seeds indoors 4 weeks before last frost date at 70˚F. Transplant to cell packs once they have several true leaves, then harden off and transplant outdoors after last frost. Alternatively, direct sow outdoors after last frost. Approximately 20-25 seeds per packet.
