Answer: There are so many kinds of marigolds that it's possible those with large flowers that you see elsewhere are the giant or double-flowering kinds and those you planted from seed are the smaller flowering varieties. Giant marigolds can have flowers that are 4" across; others produce flowers barely one and one-half inch across. Marigolds grow best in full sunshine, in average, well-draining soils. Enjoy your flowers!
