Marigold is a genus of annual or perennial, mostly herbaceous plants in the sunflower family.Marigolds are hardy and are great plants for cheering up any garden. Broadly, there are two genuses which are referred to by the common name, Marigolds viz. Tagetes and Celandula. Marigolds may have daisy-like or carnation-like flower heads that are produced singly or in clusters.
Marigold flowers come in a range of colors. Clearly the most popular colour in which these flowers are found is Orange. The orange marigolds symbolize sun and the yellow ones symbolize light.Besides that, you can find Marigolds in gold, yellow and white colour. Few of these flowers may also come with petals outlined in purple or maroon making them look fancier.
From Dussehra to Diwali, marigolds are everywhere. Garlands of glowing orange blooms are hung for auspicious reasons and flowers are offered in rituals. Marigolds are so deeply part of these Indian festivals. These flowers are the spendthrifts among annuals, bringing a wealth of gold, copper, and brass into our summer and autumn gardens. The flower‚Äôs popularity probably derives in part from its ability to bloom brightly all summer long.
