Tagetes erecta, the Mexican marigold, also called Aztec marigold, is a species of the genus Tagetes native to Mexico and Central America. Despite its being native to the Americas, it is often called African marigold. In Mexico, this plant is found in the wild in the states of San Luis Potosí, Chiapas, State of México, Puebla, Sinaloa, Tlaxcala, and Veracruz. This plant reaches heights of between 50–100 cm (20–39 in).

Care tip

Plant marigold in full sun place, remove faded and dead flower to keep plants blooming. Marigolds are highly susceptible to botrytis and spider mite infestation. Reducing fertilizer frequency and/or concenration once the bud is visible also adds additional shelf life.
