Featured in FEATURED PHOTOGRAPHERS – June 2010
This wildflower is common in swampy areas and along stream banks. Marsh marigolds emerge from shallow water or grow on small mounds holding the plant just above the water. During their dormant period the soil should not be allowed to dry at all. Marsh Marigolds are a welcome sight in early spring but seem to disappear as fast as they emerged. They transplant well but going into the spring muck to dig them up can not be described as easy but adding Marsh Marigolds to a water garden is well worth the effort
