MARIGOLD ,Cemapoaxitl, Tagates erecta (90-100 days)  ORGANIC

This marigold came to us with an obscure, Mayan sounding name that is similar to the word for flower, “cempasúchil”.  It is also called the flor de muertos ("flower of the dead") and is traditional used to help honor The Day of the Dead. Grows to 4-5 feet tall and 3-4 feet wide producing a great many single petaled orange flowers that are all abuzz with pollinators of all sorts in the late season. SSF
