This plant is native to North America and most of South America and is commonly referred to as marigold.
Three basic classes:
French, the smaller marigold, from six inches to around a foot tall . They bloom constantly until stopped by a frost or freeze;
African, also sometimes called American, is the taller variety, around three feet tall, with a larger head and blooms in summer and sometimes into late fall;
Triploid, a sterile hybrid of the French and African classes.
