The first tall hybrid marigold, bred especially for the cut flower market
Days to Maturity: 65 to 70
Bred especially for the cut flower market, Marigold ‘White Swan’ is the first tall hybrid marigold. Noted for its large blossoms, this annual offers summer through fall interest with firm, uniform, creamy white, fully double blooms. Borne singly or in clusters on long stems, the odorless, ball-shaped flowers have a long vase life and can be dried for everlasting arrangements.
Marigold ‘White Swan’ has a uniform, upright habit and a vigorous growth rate. Easy to grow, this marigold prefers full sun and average, evenly moist, well-drained soil. It is high heat and drought tolerant, generally pest and disease free, and deer resistant.
Marigold ‘White Swan’ is low maintenance, but pinching off the tops of established plants results in bushier plants with a heavier bloom, and deadheading regularly encourages and prolongs flowering. Shown to best effect when mass planted, Marigold ‘White Swan’ is perfect for beds, borders, and containers.
Direct sow marigold seed after the last frost and as soon as the soil is warm in spring or start seeds indoors 4 to 6 weeks before the last frost and transplant after all threat of frost has passed.
