Description
These are some of the most popular annual flowers on earth. The marigold group called "Crackerjack Mix" has decorated millions of gardens for decades. These are the big ones--bright ball-shaped flowers in yellow and orange or sturdy plants 2-3 ft. tall. The flowers are chrysanthemum-like with a mass of bright colored petals. And best of all, they keep blooming all summer long. Add these to your meadow, and the color will never stop.

    i casually sprinkled the seeds around and forgot about them. wherever they were tossed, they grew into delightfully large (3 ft) plants covered with big, impressive, orange or yellow flowers that keep blooming all summer and well into fall. great for fall flower arrangements! and mud spatter is not a problem for this stately marigold.

    I can't imagine what could have gone wrong. NONE of these seeds sprouted in any of the locations I planted them. All of my gardens were full of flowers, so it wasn't the soil - everything else looked amazing.

    I love marigolds and this year I bought a large amount planning on adding marigolds to all of my gardens. Not one seed sprouted.

      Comments about American Meadows Marigold Seeds Crackerjack Mix:

      This package of seeds brought amazing blooms, long lasting blooms and it was amazing how fast they grew! The really nice thing about marigolds is that the heads dry up and drop their seeds so I'm assured to have beautiful blooms next year! An added benefit are the really colorful butterflies that are STILL visiting the beautiful blooms!

            We used these as a cover crop for the part of the garden we didn't plant this year. These did a good job covering and keeping the weeds down and gave a beautiful carpet of blooms!

                Comments about American Meadows Marigold Seeds Crackerjack Mix:

                Marigolds are my favorite flower. I read the description for these, but it didn't prepare me for how huge they would be. I need to plant them better next year. I just sprinkled them all over, and I had to pull a bunch of them so other plants could get sun and water. Having marigolds blooming at eye level is weird and awesome!

                The only suggestion I have is to cover the seeds if you have ants. In the desert, we have tons. They leave the plants alone, but they would start carrying off the seeds in an area as I was done planting them. Marigold seeds do just fine with a light covering of dirt or compost, despite what the directions said.
