    Hundreds of types of marigolds have been developed for the garden over the last few hundred years. This plant was brought from the new world to Europe in the 16th century and plant hybridizers have been busy with it ever since.

Marigolds are categorized into three groups: French, African and triploid marigolds. The French marigolds
(Tagetes patula) are small bushy plants that are about 6 to 12 inches in height. The flowers are up to 2 inches across and are composed of a dense arrangement of "rays" that come in yellow, orange and a unique bronze color.
The French marigolds bloom non-stop until cut down by frost. The African marigolds (also called American marigolds),
Tagetes erecta,
Location Despite its name, T. erecta,
the African marigold, is native to Mexico and Central America. The French marigold,
T. patula, is also from this region. Marigolds have naturalized in many other warm climate areas as well.
