Bon Bon Orange Pot Marigold, Pot Marigold
The cheerful hearty pot marigold 'Bon Bon Orange' is a compact selection with fully double orange flowers. This bushy annual grows fast and delivers bright sunny color all season.
Pot marigold is a bushy annual that originates from Europe and the Mediterranean region. It is very easy-to-grow but is best in climates where summers are temperate and cool, though plants can be surprisingly drought tolerant once established. It is a classic cool season bedding plant.
During the growing season, 'Bon Bon Orange' bears double daisies of 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 needs 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 regions raise 'Bon Bon Orange' during the cooler dry season months.
