This flower has a special meaning for me (Judy, co-owner of Botanical Interests). When I was little, I would go with my mom to John’s Garden Center in San Jose, CA every spring to purchase very tall, bright yellow marigolds to encircle the patio. She just loved those big, bright, yellow blossoms. It was a very special flower of my youth, so I named this variety after her. For me, Phyllis marigold will remind me of trips to the garden center, spring planting with mom, and her wonderful summer patio parties.

Phyllis is also known as ‘Mum Yellow’ for its chrysanthemum-like 3″ flower made up of hundreds of thin, bright yellow petals. Long stems are great for cut-flower bouquets and arrangements. African Marigold petals are edible with a slightly bitter, citrusy/spice flavor. They make a pretty garnish on rice, salads, or desserts. Fairly drought tolerant.

    I received them really quickly for the distance they were shipped. Just planted them a week ago though so I can’t attest to the seed yet. No reason to think they won’t grow.

    The package arrived when expected. I really like that the labels include info for planting times/depth and a picture. This makes it much easier to organize and design my flower bed! I just planted the seeds yesterday.
