marigold haiku

red and yellow marigold flower

marigold flower
supposed to be annual
but it blooms again


I was told two years ago that the marigolds I got in my planter would not produce plants for the next year. And yet I had them popping up everywhere. So I spread the seeds that those flowers produced and I have marigolds again this year.

Have you ever had a flower surprise you?

  1. Marigolds will readily self-seed and come up volunteer. Actually a lot of flowers will, given the right temps. But they are annuals in that the root can’t survive the winter in a cold climate (esp. like ours.)
