This seed strain came to me as a gift years ago, with the story that the giver had gotten it from someone who’d brought the seeds back from Moldova, hidden in a sock. From then on, I have referred to the saved seeds as ‘Moldova’, or Moldovan marigold, though technically it is a form of Tagetes patula, which is commonly called French marigold. The flowers tend to be reddish early on; as the growing season progresses, more orange to yellow flowers appear. By late summer to fall, all three colors tend to be present at the same time, over the rich green, aromatic foliage. The plants generally reach 12 to 18 inches tall and wide; they are tidy and bushy but still retain a bit of airiness. Full sun. Annual.
Harvested in September and October 2023. At least 15 seeds. Shipping to US addresses only.
