Marigold, Pesche’s Gold, Tagates erecta (80-90 days)
Named after Howard Shapiro’s (who was involved in the early days of Seeds of Change) grandmother, Pesche’s Gold makes tall, impressive plants. These 6-8’ marigolds overflow with blooms all season. Bright and striking mixtures of golden yellow and orange yellow semi- to fully- double flowers have simple but elegantly crisped petals fringed with ruffles. This, along with other marigolds, are a great addition to the textile dye garden and yields a yellow dye, with or without mordant. FLA.
