I know that there are plenty of gardeners who aren’t too keen on, or don’t like, the bright hot orange pot marigolds as they find them too garish for most planting schemes. I have no such qualms on the plot where it’s generally a case of anything goes.
Named varieties available include Dandy (blazing orange with a green centre), Indian Prince (deep orange flowers with a red centre) and Orange Porcupine (vivid orange flowers with quilled petals).
Julie, a recent new blog friend and lawn lounger, also likes these flowers as you can see over on her post It’s All Happening In The Garden on her lovely blog Dragonfly Gems. As you’ll see she shows a montage of different twelve colour variations that she has in her garden.
Have a good weekend!
