Yellow Pompon Chrysanthemum Flower Close Up
Marigolds have daisy-like or double, carnation-like flowerheads and are produced singly or in clusters. These flowers are the spendthrifts among annuals, showing a wealth of gold, copper, and brass into our summer and autumn gardens. The flower’s popularity probably derives in part from its ability to bloom brightly all summer long. Marigolds have been stereotyped but they offer tremendous variety; some have fantastic aroma; all marigolds are good in containers and provide long-lasting cut flowers.
