When we consider what garden flowers to cut for the indoors, marigolds typically don't immediately come to mind. But marigolds make an excellent home cut flower, especially the African types. Keys to a good cut flower marigold are appropriate height, a nice size flower head, and many flowers. Garland Orange brings you all those attributes, and more. Featuring plenty of large 3½ to 4½" fully double dark orange blooms, it reaches 28 to 48", giving you ample stem length to cut and arrange in a diversity of vase sizes.
Another fun tidbit: Garland Orange makes a fun and fragrant garland necklace- a great activity for children! I used to make marigold garlands for family and friends when I was a kid. They gamely played along and got into the spirit of the fun. If you're looking for a summer activity to do with your family, have your children sow their own marigold seed, transplant and tend them in the garden, watch them grow, cut them and ultimately fashion them into garlands!
Best yet, all African marigolds are fragrant, and Garland Orange is no exception - it exudes the fragrance of summer!
