Although Jefferson did not grow this particular variety of French Marigold, the 314-year old Curtis' Botanical Magazine first illustrated the French Marigold in a 1791 issue. They have been planted at Monticello only since 1995, but are favorite here for their dazzling displays, which last until the first frost in the fall.
