FRENCH AND AFRICAN MARIGOLD

Family COMPOSITAE
Tagetes species
Annual

This is a genus, native to Mexico, of half-hardy annuals erroneously supposed to have originated in Africa.

Tagetes erecta is still called the African Marigold.
It is of upright growth of two to three feet with flower-heads of brilliant orange or yellow.
The French Marigold is Tagetes patula, with finely divided fern-like leaves and flowers, one and a half inches across, on one to one-and-a-half feet stems.
The flowers of the type are yellow, marked red.
Those of garden varieties may vary from yellow to orange, all with red, maroon or mahogany markings.
The dwarf var. nana is excellent for edging.
Tagetes signata, one to one and a half feet, has finely cut leaves and solitary yellow flowers, one inch across.
There is a six-inch dwarf form in var. pumila.

Although seed may be sown out-of-doors in April where the plants are to flower, the best flowers are produced from seedlings raised under glass from seed sown in March and planted out-of-doors in May.

Propagation is from seed.

The flowering season is from late June to September.

Tagetes – Marigold
Half Hardy Annual.
Six inches to two feet.
Flowers yellow, orange and brown, July to October.

To distinguish the French and African Marigolds from the Pot-Marigold or Calendula, they are here given under their Latin name.

Tagetes erecta, the African Marigold, is a strong upright grower, two feet or more in height, bearing dense double flowers three or four inches across, either of strong orange or sulphur yellow.
In a batch of seedlings there will always be a proportion of single flowers, but these, with a conical centre and large outer petals, are not ineffective.

Tagetes patula, the French, is like the African, except that it is blotched, and spotted with dark brown or maroon.
The strain most usually grown is the dwarf compact, less than a foot high, with may small double flowers.
This is very convenient for bedding out in masses; the taller Africans are better in clumps of two or three here and there in mixed borders.
Tagetes signata pumila is a gay half-hardy annual, producing abundance of bright yellow flowers until the autumn frosts. All the varieties should be sown on moderate heat, 50° to 65°; the first of April is soon enough, as the plants grow very rapidly, and may overcrowd the frames before it is safe to put them out.
Prick off on beds of light rich soil under glass, the African eight inches apart, the French dwarf four.
Harden by judicious taking off of the lights, plant out in ordinary garden soil in sunny open positions; no after-care should be needful, beyond keeping the ground clean and open.
