Grower's Comments and General Information:

A medium height large flower marigold the Incas are very showy in the garden. These plants grow 12-14 inches tall with the Orange Inca showing flowers 4-5 inches across and the Yellow Inca showing flowers 6-8 inches across. It has been said that the Inca Marigold helps to keep the 'critters' away from the vegetable garden but there has been no real evidence that this will happen. They enjoy a moist soil and are fast growers in the garden especially if you apply a slow-release fertilizer after planting. These annuals give a nice show of fall colors in the garden since by September and October they are fully matured and able to tolerate a bit of frost.
