|Marigolds in general are called Tagetes in Latin nomenclature. They do tolerate hot sunny conditions and do not require a particularly wet soil, but they still need some water -- at least average soil moisture to bloom well -- as do most summer blooming annuals. Burpee offers a broad selection of marigolds. You might call them at 800-888-1447 to request a catalog or order or check the web site at http://www.burpee.com for additional information.
