Origins

220px-Calendula January 2008-1 filtered

Marigold is based on and named after the real-life plant of the same name, a genus of about 15–20 species of annual and perennial herbaceous plants in the daisy family Asteraceae. They are native to southwestern Asia, western Europe and the Mediterranean.

The fact that she produces gold coins might be a pun on her name, which contains the word "gold" as a part of it ("Marigold").

Marigolds zen garden

In the original Plants vs. Zombies game, as well as all Chinese spin-offs, Marigold is the sixth plant unlocked on the Roof. She can create gold or silver coins, making her a key player in money farming with Gold Magnet.

She is also an important plant in the Zen Garden, being the cheapest plant to obtain and having a variety of colors to obtain. If the player desires, they can buy three Marigold sprouts a day from Crazy Dave's Twiddydinkies.

Plants vs. Zombies 2

Marigold reappears in Plants vs. Zombies 2, having been added in the 2.1.1 Far Future update.

Unlike her appearance in the previous game, Marigold has been reduced to the sidelines, simply being a plant exclusive to the Zen Garden. She gives coins to the player each time she grows, but doesn't do much otherwise.

Marigold reappears as a fightable boss in the shooter games Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 and Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville.

Similar to the Treasure Yeti, she is a pacifist who will only attack zombies if attacked first, instead fleeing to avoid damage. When hit, she will drop coins and release a huge burst of coins if defeated. If not defeated after a certain amount of time, she will disappear.

She appears in multiple Backyard Battleground quests in Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 and can spawn in the zombie Town Center or Weirding Woods in Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville, where she will drop a crystal dog that must be returned to the Strange Well if she's defeated.

Marigold2

Marigold's latest appearance is in the Chinese-exclusive turn-based game Plants vs. Zombies: All Stars as the second plant in the Daisy line, evolving from Daisy and evolving into Golden Chrysanthemum.

She attacks by firing money at enemies, releasing a rain of coins as their Plant Food/Anger effect. She appeared in the game even before she was added as an obtainable plant, being able to be hunted down for money in special events.
