Phyllis African Marigold Seeds

$ 1.99 USD

This flower has a special meaning for Judy, co-owner of Botanical Interests. 

When she was young, she and her mother would go to John's Garden Center in San Jose, CA every spring to purchase very tall, bright yellow marigolds to encircle the patio. 

Her mother just loved those big, bright, yellow blossoms. It was a very special flower of Judy's youth, so she named this variety after her mother. 

For Judy, Phyllis marigold will always remind her of trips to the garden center, spring planting with mom, and her wonderful summer patio parties.  Make memories with this colorful beauty yourself!

Phyllis is also known as 'Mum Yellow' for its chrysanthemum-like 3" flower made up of hundreds of thin, bright yellow petals. 

Long stems are great for cut-flower bouquets and arrangements. 

Fairly drought tolerant; deer and rabbit resistant.
