All-America Selections (AAS) Winner 2018

A popular favorite as well as a winner in trial gardens across the country, Super Hero™ Spry Marigold is the AAS winner that made one of the judges exclaim, "I would love to have this in my yard!" A truly beautiful and exceptional crested French marigold with richly colored burgundy and gold blooms, it's super-easy to grow and a tireless bloomer.

What sets Super Hero™ Spry Marigold apart from the dozens of other French marigolds on the market?

Here's what the AAS judges loved:
Earlier bloom time
Better uniformity of size (great for large plantings)
More consistency of the crested bicolor bloom form
And most of all . . . no deadheading

Super Hero™ Spry Marigold is just 8 to 10 inches high and 6 to 8 inches wide, so you can show it off in containers as well as the sunny annual bed. It is also a nice choice for edging the driveway and garden paths. Super Hero™ Spry Marigold is dependable, lower maintenance than any other marigold in the garden, and absolutely beautiful.

Like all marigolds, Super Hero™ Spry Marigold is as valuable in the tomato patch as it is in the annual bed and patio container. Marigolds kill nematodes, soil-borne pests that can destroy your tomato plants. So when you grow this beauty, sprinkle a few seeds around your favorite veggies and watch them grow and fruit better than before.

Give Super Hero™ Spry Marigold plenty of sunshine and good soil drainage, and keep it watered and fed for nonstop flowers from summer into fall. There's no harder-working nor more useful annual in garden or container.

Super Hero™ Spry Marigold is best direct sown in the warm spring soil, after all danger of frost is past. However, sometimes we just can't resist starting it indoors for even quicker blooms. If you plan to start your seeds indoors, be sure to check out our Bio Dome Seed Starter Kit. With the Bio Dome, you can control the temperature, light, and soil mix to ensure your seeds become strong for transplant.
