Garland Orange is a tall, long-stemmed, double-flowered African Marigold, magnificent and heavy-flowering all summer long. A far cry from the neat, petite bedding plants many of us are used to, this majestic showstopper deserves a place of honor in the annual garden!
Marigolds are used extensively in Hindu ceremonies and festivals and this variety was bred just for that purpose, with flexible, super-strong stems that can be braided and tied into garlands and other decorations. The flowers are absolutely immense -- 3½ to 4½ inches wide -- and packed with deep orange petals in symmetrical layers forming a pompon, vibrant and eye-catching even from a distance. Garland Orange is a flower that demands notice, and gets it every time!
