A marigold is an annual flower that thrives during the summer months. These flowering plants can grow anywhere from 6 inches to 3 feet tall, and some are even grown as herbs or for their foliage.
Marigolds are popular in landscaping and gardens for their intense color. Marigold flower colors range from yellow and gold to orange, red, and even mahogany. Striped, bi-color, and creamy white colors are not uncommon.
