A flush of warm hues enlivens this color-changing French marigold, for they open deep coral and then fade to lovely shades of cream and warm pink. An excellent choice for containers and edging, just deadhead for a carpet of bloom, especially in midsummer to fall, when other flowers start to bid adieu. In cool fall weather, the flower color deepens.
