Antigua Yellow Marigolds have huge, 3 inch blooms that keep coming all season! This hearty annual is best known for its showy yellows and oranges. As a sun loving plant, you can depend on Marigolds to spruce up any garden with a lot of flower power. With such a lovely display of color and an easy-to-grow as well as maintain reputation, it is no wonder these plants have been a long-time favorite.

Marigolds are a great companion plant for pretty much all garden plants, blooming or edible. Their roots contain thiopene which is toxic to certain nematodes.  Plant marigolds around the outside of your garden to discourage aphids  and beetles from stopping by for and all you can eat smorgasbord.  On the flip side, marigolds will also attract beneficial insects that will snack on the insects that are feasting on your plants.  Beans, carrots, cabbages and tomatoes are just a few plants that benefit from having marigolds as a companion plant.
