I have been interested in this variety of marigold but I can't justify paying $3.50+ for a packet of seeds.

If anybody is growing it this year, will you take pictures for me? I'm hoping it goes down in price in coming years because from the pictures it looks like a soft, peachy pink color.
Keep going!

I am, I got a few in a trade Crossing Fingers!
It happens in a flash, but the memory of it last forever. It can not be borrowed or stolen, and it is of no earthly good until it is given away. So if in your hurry you meet someone who is too weary to smile, leave him one of yours, for no one needs a smile quite as much as he who has none to give...

If you get any pinkish ones will you send me some seeds to the other side of the state?

I am fine with getting them at any point in the year because I can grow them indoors.
Keep going!

I'm growing them. I have posted a couple of pics in the database. They bloom a deep red and as they age they turn colors. So far to yellow. I did pay the 3.50 for them but if you join dnd's swap, I'm offering seeds there. These are unique but they don't look like the pics on Harris website. I will grow them again though.

ETA: I decided to come back and show you what they look like right now. This is a single plant. I did not group these as I wanted to get a good idea of size. I never trust the seed companies. At any rate, some information about these. The cooler the weather, the longer each color stays. The hotter, the faster they change. And although you get a peachy color as it changes from the deep red it blooms, it's quick and deep as opposed to staying there a few days and on the pink side. Right now we have 90-100 degree weather so the changes are quick but the flower does last awhile. I get more orange than peaches right now. I expect come fall, it will revert as it did in spring.
