MARIGOLD (TAGETES) 'PAPRIKA'
Masses of small red, golden centred, daisy-like flowers smother this bright plant all summer long. This lovely single marigold has a neat mound-forming habit and finely cut, citrus-scented foliage. It grows very rapidly and soon makes a vibrant addition to cottage garden borders, beds or containers giving a colourful, long lasting display.
For best results, seeds are sown directly into the ground where required in the spring. Alternatively, sow in late winter/early spring in gentle warmth, 15-20 degrees C. Prick out into small 3 inch or 7 cm. pots and plant in final position when the plants are established.
Common name:Tagetes tenuifolia, Signet Marigold
