The Bonanza series is noted for its earliness, large flowers, uniformity and superior performance under a wide range of conditions. Flowers are the largest of any in this type – a huge, 2 to 2.5 in. (5 to 6 cm) across – available in a wide range of pure, intense colours. Bonanza is faster to flower than other crested French marigolds. In the garden, the plants are excellent performers.
