|Nugget Series is part of the Triploid marigolds producing compact, double flowerheads in shades of yellow, orange, red and gold. In general, marigolds are bushy annuals that have angular, rounded stems that are sometimes purplish in color. Late spring to fall flowers are plentiful and about 1 to 2.5 inches across. Though thought of as a summer annual, works well for fall plantings too, especially as a chrysanthemum substitute. Great for borders and containers. A natural insect repellant for herb and vegetable gardens. Remove and discard spent flowers to encourage extended flowering and reduce "housing" for insects and disease. Grow in full sun in well-drained soil. Cross between T.erecta and T. patula.
