Marigold 'Striped Marvel' syn. 'Mr Majestic'
This is a heirloom variety of marigold which is said to be of Scottish origin. I am growing it again because it reminds me of summer and striped beach umbrellas and all things relaxing. Something to look forward to in the months to come. Also again I am reminded of that Edwardian period of Australian art as painted by E Phillips Fox and Rupert Bunny.
