Collarette Marigold Crown of Gold

The All-America Gold Medal Winner for the Best New Flower for 1937

The picture to the left is Burpee's new Collarette Marigold "Crown of Gold." It is an entirely new type of flower - the top or crown looks like a Chrysanthemum with beautiful in-curved petals which are surrounded by a collar of big broad petals of the same color, brilliant golden orange. The flowers are sweet scented and measure 2 1/2 inches across.

"Crown of Gold" is the only Marigold in cultivation with entirely odorless foliage. It is early flowering and blooms all summer long until killed by frost. Plants, 2 feet high, are almost smothered with flowers on long stems.

"Crown of Gold" originated on Burpee's Floradale Seed Farms. It is a development from a wild Chinese Marigold.
