Unusual cream colored flowers make Vanilla one of our popular sellers in African marigolds. The 2-1/2" to 3" creamy white blooms create a lovely contrast to the dark green foliage on robust, yet compact, well-branched plants. Vanilla offers a high tolerance to Botrytis, as the fully double flower heads have tight centers allowing them to shed the water that causes them to turn brown.
This variety has proven performance in packs, pots, and in the garden which keeps this white marigold in high demand.
