French marigold is a popular flower throughout the world, having a wider range of color than the African type. It grows very easily, plant has dwarf, bushy growth (10 – 32 cm high) almost round in shape and bears large number of flowers of attractive color. The flower color may be yellow, golden, rusty red, mahogany, orange, deep-scarlet and often blotched, stripped or spotted in different colors. The heads may be single or double.

Although marigold can be grown throughout the year, mild winter is favorable for its growth and flowering.
