August Marigolds

I have to admit, I have always been a marigold hater up until now. They always reminded me of an old lady flower bed. Man are these plants vivacious in the dead heat of summer! I got these plants dirt cheap on clearance at lowes this spring because I need a filler in my mainly perennial flower bed. I haven't watered these and they still continue to grow plush and bloom like crazy! I'm glad I got a few different red and orange shades.  The picture includes a naked lady in the background, shield your young ones eyes!
UPDATE my VIP plant of the summer has officially climbed all the way to the top and continues to bloom! The Clematis is not as thick as I was hoping, but I'm sure next year it will fill out.
