Color Crazy Challenge – Orange marigold(Tagetes erecta)

Carol inspired me to share this photo with Color Crazy Challenge. My marigold is a bit different from hers but it is a beautiful orange flower I meet in the park, wich blooms all summer.

In my area, the flowers are grown as an ornamental plant, but I know  the marigold petals are edible and are very good added to salads for taste or color.

Also, the marigold flowers are used in the pharmaceutical industry for the extraction of lutein.

  • Did you know the marigold petals are edible?

    • Yes
    • No

What do you think?
