Add a touch of vibrant red to your garden with Tagetes patula var. Red Cherry Marigold, also known as French Marigold or Red Cherry Marigold. This annual flower produces beautiful blended red and yellow flowers from July to October, attracting insects such as butterflies and bees to your garden. Not only is this plant visually pleasing, but secretions from its roots also make it effective against nematodes and keeled slugs.

The essential oil extracted from the plant is used in perfumery and can be blended with sandalwood oil to produce the well-loved 'attar genda' perfume. With its diverse range of uses, this low-growing plant is perfect for edging herbaceous borders or simply adding a dash of color to your garden.
