Owning a landscaping company I get people who have conflicting information all of the time. The last one was Marigolds are a perennial. A perennial is a plant that comes back after a winter dormancy. Annuals return from seeds. I told them I don't know of any perennial Marigolds. They insisted that their father planted them and they came back every year. I haven't looked to see if I could find a perennial. I thought I would bring the issue to MyLot first to see what results that I get. Are your Marigolds annual or perennial? Feel free to add a photo if you have one. If they are perennial please list the Latin name or as much information as possible. Lets see what we get.
