All-America Selections (AAS) Winner 2019

Big Duck™ Yellow, a natural semi-dwarf F1 marigold, is an annual offering summer through fall interest, blooming up to the first frost. Highly floriferous, Big Duck™ Yellow produces more flowers for longer than most marigolds. Borne singly or in clusters on sturdy stems, the 4-inch, bright yellow, fully double blooms attract butterflies and hummingbirds. The flowers last a long time in the garden or vase and can be dried for everlasting arrangements.

A Tagetes erecta, commonly called African marigold, Aztec marigold, American marigold, or big marigold, Big Duck™ Yellow has a uniform, compact, bushy habit with a carpet-like spread and a vigorous growth rate. Shown to best effect when mass planted, Big Duck™ Yellow is perfect for landscapes, beds, and borders and makes a great filler for container gardens and large plantings.

Easy to grow, Big Duck™ Yellow is low maintenance. The plant prefers full sun and average, evenly moist, well-drained soil. It holds up to rain and is high heat and drought tolerant, generally pest and disease free, and deer resistant. Deadheading is not required but removing spent blooms regularly encourages and prolongs flowering, and pinching off the tops of established plants results in bushier plants with a heavier bloom.

Direct sow marigold seed after the last frost as soon as the soil is warm in spring or start seeds indoors 6 to 8 weeks before the last frost and transplant after all threat of frost has passed.

If you plan to start your seeds indoors, be sure to check out our Bio Dome Seed Starter Kit. With the Bio Dome, you can control the temperature, light, and soil mix to ensure your seeds become strong for transplant.
