French Marigold, Tashkent #1 FLOWER 0.5 g

Retail Price: $2.75

[Found outside an old Muslim school in Tashkent, Uzbekistan in 1992. This marigold is a favorite of flower seed collector, Bob Bell. Introduced in 1999 by SESE.] The plants are 12 to 16" tall, with a deep green dense foliage that has a sweet marigold fragrance. It lacks the common astringent odor of other marigolds. The plants are so fragrant they sweeten the air on a hot summer day. 'Tashkent #1' bears numerous 1-1/2 to 2" single petalled flowers that have yellow centers and velvet mahogany petals with a fine orange border. As the petals mature they change from mahogany red to orange red. This is the finest marigold that we have grown. Pkt. (0.5 g)
