Queen Sophia was an All-America Selection in 1978, and Highly Recommended by the Royal Horticultural Society in 1983. It is also our most popular marigold variety. A French marigold, Queen Sophia produces 3" double, russet-red flowers with a golden picotee along the edges. Its compact size makes it versatile and useful in almost any garden situation: borders, interplanted with vegetables and in containers. This strain is noted for its nematocidal properties. 10-12" tall. 60 days.
