A perennial (returns every year) plant. Their flowers have both ray and disc florets, are usually 1-3 in (3-7 cm) across, and come in a variety of colors, though are noted for their bright, warm hues (oranges, yellows, whites, and reds). Some flowers are a solid color, others may be two-toned, with a secondary accent coloring the petals' edges. Their leaves are spirally arranged, 2-7 in (5-18 cm) long, and are slightly hairy. Marigold flowers can typically be found from late spring-fall. It is recommended to deadhead (removal of dying flower heads) the plants regularly to maintain even blossom production.
Though marigolds are not native to 'Souls, they were widely cultivated by humanity and have naturally spread since humanity's fall. They prefer semi-shade (ex. light woodland) or no shade, and moist soil. They can be found in a variety of areas, from roadsides to gardens to meadows and woodlands. They do not like extreme cold or heat.
