Marigolds: true annuals and flower of the month
September 30, 2010
Pot marigolds have a full autumn life-cycle. They germinate, flower, seed and die in one season, and it is unlikely you will have to
them twice, reports the Christian Science Monitor.
The flowers are self-sowing and the news source advises against removing dead flowers from the pot so that the
can be allowed to seed. Other examples of self-seeders are the cosmos flower, spider flowers and poppies.
Inexpensive and home to the bumblebee, the flowers bloom in various autumnal hues. Typically, the flowers are planted in herb gardens but they also look wonderful in flower beds, the news source suggests.
The marigold is renowned for its medicinal use. During the Civil War and WWI it was used to treat wounds. Today cooks use the petals of the plant for seasoning and dye, and it is often used to treat skin problems and eyewash, according to Suite101.com.
Marigolds are October’s birth month flower and they're frequently used as decoration in places of worship. The flower belongs to the asteracea sunflower family, who’s evolutionary roots were recently traced to South America.
