An elegant series of low marigolds for decorating borders, flowerpots, flowerpots and balcony boxes, forming a branched bush 25-35 cm high with orange inflorescences 4-5 cm in diameter. Blooms from June until frost. Marigolds are photophilous and thermophilic, they do not tolerate frosts, they are undemanding to soils, but they prefer fertile, light soils. Sowing for seedlings is carried out in the second half of March-early April. Seedlings appear 4-8 days after sowing, seedlings dive in the phase of the 2nd true leaf. Seedlings are planted in early June with a distance between plants of 30-35 cm. Sowing in open ground is carried out in May at a depth of 1.5-2 cm.
