red cherry french marigold

Tagetes patula

This is my favorite marigold in the garden. I love the bright yellow center and fringes dancing in the midst of deep rusty red velvety petals.

The French marigold is native to Mexico and is considered non-invasive, according to the Cornell University Gardening website.
