One of the most beautiful and most recognizable flowers in the gardening world! Pot marigold is a simple, elegant plant, with low nutrient and water requirements. Just give it a lot of sun and space, and it will reward you with a myriad of fiery flowers.
Great Sun above me in the sky,
So golden, glorious, and high,
My petals, see, are golden too;
They shine, but cannot shine like you.
I scatter many seeds around;
And where they fall upon the ground,
More Marigolds will spring, more flowers
To open wide in sunny hours.
— Cicely Mary Barker
The common name of pot marigold is derived from the combination of mary and gold because the gold flowers that bloomed during the festivals of the Virgin Mary in Renaissance times were often used in cooking.
According to legend, pot marigold was the flower that informed Virgin Mary of her pregnancy, so people born with this kind of flower blessing have maternal love and are full of all-embracing tenderness.
