Marigold is probably native to the Mediterranean region. It can be used in ointments and elixirs as a natural medicine to relieve various types of health conditions. Marigold seeds are heteromorphic, meaning the seeds have different shapes in each region that allows spread of the seed in more than one way. One end is shaped to float on the wind, while the other end has small hooks that can catch in animal fur and be carried away. Marigolds are valuable as a soil improvement when plowed under as "green manure". Some varieties are planted in beds with crops to help in the control of nematode worms. The colorful blooms can be dried and steeped to make an herbal tea or used fresh in salads. The dried powdered petals can also be substituted for saffron in many recipes.
