Description

Swamp Marigold produces brilliant yellow-gold blossoms in late summer and fall. It's flowers attract many species, and its foliage is consumed by the caterpillar of the Dainty Sulphur Butterfly. Swamp Marigold grows and blooms the first year from seed (it is an annual) and will re-seed for future seasons. Unlike most Bidens the seed will not easily attach to clothing or fur.

Type: Bog plant, water plant, moist soil area

Height: 48", 1.2m

Hardiness zones: 4-9

Location: Sun 

Seeds per pack: 20

Germination: Start these seeds right away for best germination rates. Sow the seeds just under the surface of a sterile seed-start mix, and water in. Then cover them with plastic and place in a fridge for 5-6 weeks. Be sure they stay moist. After the cold stratification period they are then brought back to room temperature for them to germinate. Germination is in 14-60 days after the warming period. If possible, the best location for sowing in March, April and May, is in cold frame or a cold greenhouse where they will receive the cold period and fluctuating temperatures naturally.
