Marigold flowers dye fabrics and yarns yellow to orange, with an iron mordant they produce saturated dark tones.
For reorders: This year these are a different variant than last year's marigold. They are just as tall and with filled flowers, which can be either orange or yellow.

This annual is best planted in a sunny location with well-drained, humus-rich soil. This marigold variant grows up to 80cm high and is beautiful in mixed plantings. Like smaller marigolds, they are good partners in mixed cultures and are effective against nematodes.

The large, double flowers don't just contain dye, they are also edible. Marigold is also traditionally used as a medicinal plant. You can harvest flowers from the plants several times, and if there are no early frosts, they will bloom well into late autumn.

The seeds were grown in Berlin. I offer a kit with several dye plants.
