Bees and other beneficial insects – Marigolds attract ladybugs, parasitic wasps, hoverflies, and other beneficial insects that protect your plants from aphids and other harmful pests. The blooms, particularly single-bloom cultivars, also draw bees and other important pollinators.
Adding variety to the landscape – Marigolds are available in sunny shades of orange, yellow, red, mahogany, or combinations. Flowers may be single or double, and in sizes ranging from 6 inches (15 cm.) to 3 feet (1 m.). One of the many uses for marigolds is adding variety to the landscape.
Easy, breezy marigolds – Caring for marigolds couldn’t get much easier. The hardy plants tolerate sun, heat, drought, and nearly any well-drained soil. Marigolds are easy to grow from transplants, or you can start seeds indoors or directly in your garden.
Marigold companion planting – When planted nearby, marigolds may protect cruciferous plants from cabbageworms, and tomato plants from hornworms, probably because scent confuses the pests. Marigold is also a good companion when planted near bush beans, squash, cucumbers, and eggplant.
