Bon Bon Yellow Pot Marigold, Pot Marigold
The pretty pot marigold 'Bon Bon Yellow' is a compact selection with fully double (extra petals), yellow 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 proven bedding plant in the cool season.
During the growing season, 'Bon Bon Yellow' bears double daisies of bright yellow. 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 grow it in the cooler months of the dry season.
