Insects on Bur Marigold

Bur marigold attracts many insects which enjoy the nectar and pollen from their flowers.  The beautiful yellow flower heads can be seen in September and October growing in sunny or partially shady wet areas.

  1. That’s a great quote Rebecca and I don’t know what colors are more beautiful and vibrant, those of the butterflies or those Bur Marigolds petals. It is easier for the insects to find them, that’s for sure.
