Kilimanjaro White Marigold Seeds
$6.00 $0.00 ( / )

Mt Kilimanjaro is the highest free-standing mountain in the world, and we think this flower is just as singular. It took over 50 years and the efforts of thousands of gardeners to breed a truly white Marigold. Here she is- and oh boy was she worth the wait.

Marigolds are used in sacred ceremonies the world round, found on alters from Mexico to India. If their holy lineage isn't enough to encourage you to tuck a few of these plants into your garden, Marigolds are also edible (you can eat the blossoms and the ferny foliage), and they are natural pest deterrents.
