Mountain marigold is very tolerant of heat, drought and poor, calcareous soils, so plant it where other, more finicky flowers might not be happy. Mountain marigold blooms only during short-day seasons, so be patient as the shrub grows throughout the summer; it will reward you with a brilliant display of yellow flowers in the fall and winter (until the first frost). White-tailed deer don't eat mountain marigold, but the bees and butterflies love the flower's nectar.
