Herbaceous perennial ranging from 1 to 2 feet in height, Marsh Marigold blooms bright yellow flowers from April to June. While Marsh Marigold is not known to directly attract any birds, it will attract many insects – which will in turn attract insectivorous birds. On a side note, turtles eat Marsh Marigold seeds.
