Just as you'd expect from something called French, these marigolds are the fancy ones. French marigolds tend to be frilly and some boast a distinctive "crested eye." They grow roughly 8-12 inches high with a chic, neat, little growth habit and elegant dark green foliage.
They do best in full sun with moist, well-drained soil and will flower all summer long. They may reseed, coming back year after year, in spots where they're happy.

Bidens is such a rugged plant, it'll bloom happily while draped across hot pavement. It's great along a front edge with marigolds standing up behind.Moss rose
Charming moss roses make a colorful, carefree carpet underneath French marigolds.Zinnia
It takes bold blooms to hold their own up next to marigolds, and zinnias are ready for the job. Zinnias appreciate the same kind of garden environment -- sunny and well-drained soil -- expand the color range that marigolds offer.
