    Lovely Marigold

    I just love this marigold, and I will grown them again. If kept deadheaded, they outlast all other annuals in my garden. I noticed that the bees really took to them late in the season, when other flowers become scarce. The petals are beautiful - orangey red on the top, and yellow underneath.
