Plant Description

Marsh Marigold is a beautiful late spring bloomer for a sunny, moist area. Fifteen inch mounded clumps of bright green, succulent, wavy-edged, rounded leaves produce bright yellow, shiny, 1 inch flowers that look like buttercups, from late spring to early summer. Marsh Marigold needs rich soil that never gets dry. (If soil dries too much in the summer, the plant will go dormant.) It will thrive in a wet sunny area with Blue Flag Iris, Gentians,Turtlehead, and Cardinal Flower.
