Marigolds make excellent cut flowers and attract bees, butterflies, and birds. They also keep garden pests away. They do, however, attract good stuff such as bees & butterflies.
Marigolds can easily be grown in containers, earning their nickname of ‘Pot Marigold’. The Crackerjack variety has huge showy 3 ½ - 5” blooms.
