This came to us with a Mayan name that is similar to the word for marigold, “cempasúchil”, and marigolds are also called the flor de muertos ("flower of the dead").  Grows to 4-5 feet tall and 3-4 feet wide producing a great many SINGLE and few double petaled orange flowers that are all abuzz with pollinators of all sorts later in the season. Makes a great dye plant.
