I am quite sure there will be several folks who will identify this marigold for you. I have grown marigolds in the past, but really don't know any varities' names.

Welcome!
I'm thinking it's the French Marigold but let's wait for an expert to come along...it's Christmas today so the answer may be delayed a bit.

Hi and Welcome! Your picture has maybe three different kinds of marigolds in it. Looks like there's a single orange, and a couple of doubles there.

There are dozens of different varieties of marigolds in a range of colors from creamy white, all shades of yellow and gold and orange, plus dark red and combinations, too. Some top out at 10in. high and others grow to 3ft or so. How tall are/were these plants? Here's a link to a seed supplier that has 25 varieties pictured.

This might be the best way for you to match your particular flower - shop the online seed catalogs until you see a similar picture then match the height of your plants to it.

Welcome to All Things Plants, @Woodenman12 !

I agree with Elaine, there are a lot of marigolds with very similar-looking flowers... the plant height could help narrow things down a bit.

So the marigolds name I am after is a marigold that is flat instead of a pom pom shape. If anyone has had marigold that is more of a flat/disc shaped let me know. I have seen them in orange and yellow. The flower were fairly large 3 to 4 inches. Thanks

As greene asked, the height would help to know if it is a French marigold or African marigold. If it's fairly short and the flowers smallish it would be a French marigold (not sure that I've even seen an African one in a single flat flower). In the colours you're looking for you might start with the "Disco" series of French marigold, there are some example pics on Google:

Your photo appears on a website Terry Gardens - a visit to Christopher Lloyd's Great Dixter Wall Garden; the author describes the plant only as Chrysanthemum-flowered Marigold:
http://terrygardens.com/tag/abelia/

If you need an exact answer perhaps you could send a message to Great Dixter House & Gardens. Page with contact information:
http://www.greatdixter.co.uk/contact/

Their catalog lists the orange color variety of Tagetes:

Here is the 'Cinnabar' variety in our All Things Plants database:

The marigold was about 2-3 feet so I'm thinking African marigold. I found another pic of the one I saw in a local garden that's started this It's the orange marigold on the left. There was another marigold like the orange marigold In the garden except it was yellow and the petals were not as loose and more straits out making the flower look like a plate or disc instead of a ball shape


Thumb of 2015-12-26/woodenman12/6c96a2

Correct that pic was from terry garden. I was starting my hunt my on web but couldn't find anything close to it except that picture. Oh and green thank you for identify the other marigold I really liked it and wanted to grow it next year in the garden. Thumbs up

Here's a nice single-flowered one from our database, too.
Tagetes lunulata

If you're looking for seeds - try some of the heirloom seed suppliers. Marigolds have been bred for years to make the flowers more and more double, so some of the singles have become harder to find. Hence heirloom seed suppliers would be the places to look for a good selection of singles.

Here's another link to a seed supplier - top of the page is Durango Outback Mix that looks to have a nice variety of single colors, and bottom of the page is Tangerine Gem that might be the one you're looking for?
