Long Stemmed Marigolds Abound in Santa Barbara !

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Napa Consultants DRE00893924

These long stemmed marigolds are appearing at every market in town, including the Farmers Market. They are one of the flowers that are used for garlands. leis, decorations as well as making altars for the celebration of the Day of the Dead.

Often called “flowers of the dead,” cempasuchil, or flor de muerto, these bright orange and yellow flowers’ fragrance is said to attract souls to the altar. Their bright and cheery color also celebrate life instead of feeling bitter about death. Real or paper marigolds appear on altars, crosses and garlands — and sometimes people even create a marigold path from their home to the altar.

Wishing everyone a wonderful Thursday

Cheers, Ron & Alexandra

Michael Jacobs California has a long history of migration from South America and Mexico in particular.  It makes sense to grow and sell these beauties, and our county and some cities are know for their flower growing. A

Sham Reddy CRS I leaned about these long stemmed when we moved to Santa Barbara, even though I was aware of the Day of the Dead.  I used to plant their short cousins around my vegetables to keep bugs away.  A
