Marigold, African Marigold Coco Gold
Blooms Summer to Fall
Plant 12-18” apart
African Marigolds (also known as American or Aztec Marigolds) are much larger than French Marigolds with large 3” double blooms on long stems that can be used as cut flowers. They also repel garden pests while attracting pollinators and beneficial insects. The petals are edible, with a floral flavor and a hint of citrus, good for use in salads, as a garnish, or cooked in egg and rice dishes.
