Annual. These lovely 2" creamy-white blooms really stand out in a crowd!

White marigolds were long in the making. In fact, Burpee Seed Company spent 56 years searching and breeding before finding success. In the end, David Burpee offered $10,000 to the first home gardener to provid seed leading to a truly white variety. Thousands of gardeners responded, for years. Alice Vonk (of Sully, Iowa) submitted seeds for 21 years until finally, in 1975, Burpee awarded her the prize. All tolled, Burpee Seeds spent more than five decades and $250,000 in the pursuit. Now there are several white varieties, including this beauty.

  • Annual
  • Full Sun
  • Ideal Temperature: 75-80 F
  • Plant Spacing: 8-12"
  • Frost Hardy: No
  • Tagetes erecta nana

Growing Tips: Thrives in full sun and summer heat. Remove spent flowers to prolong blooming period.
