Answer: Hi Tom,

Thank you for contacting Yates.

It’s common to see colour change when growing plants from seeds due to cross-pollination. The only way to ensure the new growth is true to type is propagation by cuttings or resow annually with yellow marigold seeds, try Yates Marigold ‘Petite Yellow’, please read more from the following link: https://www.yates.com.au/products/seeds/flowers/marigold-petite-yellow/

Hope this helps and happy gardening.

Best Regards,
