2011 Annual Flower Trial : "Voted Best Marigold 2011"
2011 Annual Flower Trial - Best Marigold "Narai Orange"
From Ameriseed Inc. Perfectly shaped orange flowers had a nice carnation look and a heavy petal count. Blooms kept a nice crisp, fresh look and did not rot in the center. Plants were vigorous and uniform.

2012 Annual Flower Trial - Best Marigold "Christy Orange Improved"
Relatively large ornage flowers were noted as being "super double" due to their high petal count. Short, compact plants with dark foliage not only contrasted nicely with the ornage flowers but had the added feature of not lodging despite the overhead watering. This created a problem for some other Marigold varieties.
