Pot marigolds in the 'Bon Bon Mix' are dwarf, and have fully double flowers. These bushy annuals grow fast and deliver bright sunny color all season.
Pot marigold is a bushy annual that originates from Europe and the Mediterranean region. Very easy-to-grow, it's best in climates where summers are temperate and cool, though plants can be surprisingly drought tolerant once established. It is a favored cool season bedding plant.
During the growing season, 'Bon Bon Mix' bears double daisies that come in shades of cream, bronze, yellow and orange. These appear amid many soft medium green leaves and are highly attractive to bees and butterflies. The petals of pot marigold flowers are edible and add a spicy flavor to salads.
This annual is long-blooming and highly rewarding. It prefers full sun to partial shade and moist, well-drained, fertile soil. Regular deadheading will encourage continuous flowering as will regular food and water. Enjoy Pot marigolds in mixed borders, containers, herb gardens or vegetable gardens. In subtropical climates raise 'Bon Bon Mix' during the cooler dry season months.
