Marigolds are another plant you can't get wrong. They belong to the Asteraceae family, like the Daisies, Asters and Chrysanthemums, coming originally from North and South America. They can grow up to 5 feet, depending on the type. The colours are typically in yellow, orange and white, but some have other deeper and prettier shades. There are two types: M. tagetes and M. calendula (also known as the Pot Marigold), both with distinct differences.

The name came from 'Mary's Gold' which refers to the Virgin Mary. Information on the herb tagetes.
