Early to show in the garden, Marsh Marigold is at home in the most moist part of the landscape, in fact, it will not tolerate drying out and prefers at least some partial shade. Plant it in groups in any wet areas and get prepared for a show with almost fleshy, deep green, rounded foliage emerging early and held aloft on stalks with longer stalks pushing flower buds above the foliage in late April. These buds open in early May to reveal clusters of waxy yellow cups that contrast with the foliage and put on a great show into early June. Marsh Marigold is a great early nectar source for native bees and insects and a great source of cover for loads of landscape critters.
