Brilliant colors on big pompons

All-America Selections (AAS) Winner 2018

A popular favorite as well as a winner in trial gardens across the country, Super Hero Spry is the AAS winner that made one of the judges exclaim, "I would love to have this in my yard!" A truly beautiful and exceptional crested French marigold with richly colored burgundy and gold blooms, it's super-easy to grow and a tireless bloomer.

What sets Super Hero™ Spry apart from the dozens of other French marigolds on the market?

Here's what the AAS judges loved:
Earlier bloom time
Better uniformity of size (great for large plantings)
More consistency of the crested bicolor bloom form
And most of all . . . no deadheading

Super Hero Spry is just 8 to 10 inches high and 6 to 8 inches wide, so you can show it off in containers as well as the sunny annual bed. It's also a nice choice for edging the driveway and garden paths. It's dependable, lower maintenance than any other marigold in the garden, and absolutely beautiful.

Like all marigolds, Super Hero Spry is as valuable in the tomato patch as it is in the annual bed and patio container. Marigolds kill nematodes, soil-borne pests that can destroy your tomato plants. So when you grow this beauty, sprinkle a few seeds around your favorite veggies and watch them grow and fruit better than before.

Marigold is best direct sown in the warm spring soil, after all danger of frost is past. However, sometimes we just can't resist starting it indoors for even quicker blooms. In that case, the 40- or even 18-cell Bio Dome is a good choice for these long, slender seeds.

Give Super Hero Spry plenty of sunshine and good soil drainage, and keep it watered and fed for nonstop flowers from summer into fall. There's no harder-working nor more useful annual in garden or container.
