I can tell this is a marigold, certainly smaller than what is described as "dwarfed" and I don't find any listings for miniatures. This is very tiny, The flowers are smaller than a dime and the plant is no more than 6" tall. The leaves are serrated like a marigold, but I cannot find an official name. I'm sure this is used for fairy gardens, it's so petite and delicate. Help for identifying it will be appreciated. Thanks in advance. Fleur569

It looks like a Signet Marigold

@Daisyl
Thank you for your response regarding my Mini Marigold. I had looked into the Signet Marigold category, and the reason I was reluctant to classify it as such because the height descriptions was between 12" to 20" tall. These little plants are nowhere near that. If no more accurate findings come up, I probably will place it in that general category or Signet Marigold, although the specific names in the database also don't seem to apply to this coloration.

Look at Dwarf Signet Marigold - they are 6 - 12 inches.
