This marigold is from a marigold plant from a few years ago that has come back. There are a few other smaller marigold plants around it as well. There is an orange and red flower and few other flower buds on the plant.
This marigold is in our school garden and gets full sun.
This plant was chosen by a 5th-grade group at John G (The Green Bees). These are their questions based on their observations: 1. Why do the leaves look like they are pointed? 2. What happens to the flower over the winter? 3. What is the beetle doing on the flower?
