So pretty

I’m impressed with how fast they germinated. One popped up in 24hrs then the others within 30-36hrs. Haven’t had them long but I would definitely buy again.

An exceptionally beautiful marigold
Cynthia from NY wrote on January 20, 2022

Such a unique marigold! Colors are constantly changing. Every week it's like getting a different looking plant. Flowers bloom wine red, then bright rust red, then orange, and then yellow. I sowed these Fireball marigolds in late summer and they lasted until mid December, when colors stopped changing and had only wine red flowers. Zone 7b They did well even with little to no sun. Their autumn colors compliment beautifully with pumpkins. Ridiculously fast germination. I sowed only 6 seeds in regular potting soil and they all germinated within 36 hours. Can't wait to grow them again for spring.

Unique and easy to grow

I love these reddish marigolds. This will be my second season planting them. They are not sold in stores so when people see them they always ask. I have a big garden and plant them in different places. I harvest marigold seeds and plant them the next season. But I always buy a new packet from Parks for all the varieties I like, just to be sure. This variety is a standout!

Planted around my mailbox. Healthy plants. Beautiful blooms. I planted them later in the growing season, so I didn't get blooms until later in summer, but they are putting on quite a show this summer/fall!!

I had to start new seedlings when I lost all from being away Memorial weekend. The new seedlings are still young yet but with the start of Summer I’m hoping they’ll take off.
