Inca 2 Orange Marigold
Tagetes erecta. Large, fully double flowers neatly displayed on strong stems. This beauty is blanketed in everlasting 4” flowers all season long even in the hottest conditions, and is a more compact height than most African marigolds. A cheerful plant suitable for beds or mass plantings. Seed is best started indoors 6-8 weeks prior to last frost date in your zone. Grows 12-14” high and 12-14” wide. Approximately 25 seeds/pkg.
Very easy to grow. Start inside 6-8 weeks before last frost. Start African types earlier than French types. Cover seed with 1⁄4 inches of soil and provide an average soil warmth (75 degrees F). Transplant after last frost into a sunny location. May also be direct seeded 2 weeks before last frost.
Will grow well in poor soil. Space African types 12-18 inches apart, and French types 6-8 inches apart. Deadhead regularly.
