about the white marigold! Using my friend Google, I searched, found, and ordered them, eagerly waiting in anticipation for them to arrive. I was truly dismayed. There were only about 25 seeds in the package and had I sneezed they would have been lost. The price of the few seeds along with a not so friendly shipping charge left something to be desired. I did a little research and learned how the recipe for the white zinnias had been elusive and sought after for many years, hence the high price for a few seeds (but not the shipping :).
But I did love the results. Although not true white, having a hint of soft moonlight yellow, they are stately, elegant, and beautiful with no strong aroma. The blooms are full, 2-3" across, and will last up until frost. For the wedding party, I plan to plant white mums to go along side white pumpkins (if I can find them). Coupled with the soft white marigolds, it should be very pretty. I would love to gift any of my readers some seeds from the Vanilla Marigolds. Just let me know in your comment and as soon as they have dried I will get them to you. Enjoy and have a great week. xoxo
