description for "Marigolds: Tagetes patula x erecta 'Summer Splash'"

Cheerful 'Summer Splash' is more heat and rain tolerant and blooms longer than any marigold produced by Renee's Garden. This new cross of African and French types produces vigorous, branching plants literally covered with sunny flowers. Great for borders, walkways or big decorative planters, 'Summer Splash' has crisp blue-green foliage and bright yellow aromatic blossoms that butterflies love to visit. This flower powerhouse blooms for months with no need for removing spent blossoms. These cheerful marigolds are quick to bloom, carefree and non-fussy. Their profusion of long lasting flowers and blue-green foliage are perfect in any sunny spot and makes long blooming handsome borders. Feed and water regularly, especially if planting in containers. No need to pinch these self-branching productive plants or remove spent flowers for spectacular long bloom. - edited by dtd pbcouchman
