This mix thrives in the summer heat

Days to Maturity: 28

While most marigolds wither back in the summer heat, the Hot Pak™ Mixture Marigolds thrive. This is the first French variety to be developed specifically for hot weather.

Hot Pak™ Mixture Marigolds create mounds of foliage and full blooms in shades of vibrant yellow, rich orange, and scarlet. Some blooms are solid colors, while others are multicolored. The blooms hang around longer than African type marigolds, providing blooms right up until the frost, and they won't fall over.

Flowering annuals, these compact Hot Pak™ Mixture Marigold plants are 6 to 7 inches tall, versatile and fit nicely in flower beds as well as containers. But Hot Pak™ Mixture Marigolds are just as popular with vegetable gardeners as they are with flower gardeners because marigolds produce oils that harmful pests don't like, making Hot Pak™ Mixture Marigold an excellent companion plants for vegetables. So, try tucking Hot Pak™ Mixture Marigold into your next tomato container to keep tomato hornworms and aphids away.

Hot Pak™ Mixture Marigold plants can be started indoors and planted outdoors after the risk of frost has passed. If you plan to start your seeds indoors, be sure to check out our Bio Dome Seed Starter Kit. With the Bio Dome, you can control the temperature, light, and soil mix to ensure your seeds become strong for transplant.
