Ball’s Orange

I just love the orange color Marigolds (Calendula officinalis ‘Ball’s orange) have. It is so bright and striking.

It always surprises me how much water they need to grow well. The summer here has been dry and some of my Marigolds are still dwarfs and not blooming.

Well I guess I just enjoy the ones that made it.

Ball’s Orange

Marigold 1

It is time for the marigolds to start blooming. Only have color orange this year.

Up here in the north marigolds are one of the most reliable annual bloomers. Not that sensitive to cold and can take different kind of weather without suffering too much.

I think I will have yellow ones next year just for a change.
