Marigold Spun Orange Seeds

We love the huge million-petaled blooms of these Marigolds, such a surprising shape!

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), they are natural pest deterrents, and they make a gorgeous orange dye.

Includes 25 seeds.
