Spectacular 6-7cm (2½-3in) bright yellow, double blooms on dwarf sturdy plants makes it a considerable improvement on its nearest rival. It is quite as dwarf as many French marigolds and very neat and tidy whilst retaining its huge and fully double blooms, extraordinary reliability and almost legendary heat and poor weather tolerance. Flowers mid to late summer. Height 20-25cm (8-10in).
Culinary note: The citrus tasting flowers have many uses, try them in salads, sandwiches or seafood dishes too. For more details about edible flowers click here.
