If she never has to confront another zombie on the lawn again it will be too soon.

For other uses, see Marigold (disambiguation).


Marigold is a recurring character within the Plants vs. Zombies franchise. Marigold is associated with Coins and depending on the game, will either give the player coins or use them to attack enemies.

As of Plants vs. Zombies 3, Marigold has appeared in five games.

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 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").

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

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

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

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. The only way to plant a Marigold in a level is by using hacks, and if so, it behaves much like its counterpart in the first game.

Marigold reappears as a fightable boss in the shooter games Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 and the more recent, 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.

Main article: Chrysanthemum line


Marigold's latest appearance was 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 attacked by firing money at enemies and appeared in the game even before she was added as an obtainable plant, being able to be hunted down for money during special events.

Her active ability was Money King, which dealt damage to all the enemies on-screen and dealt 5% more damage per coin used, being able to use up to 7 coins while her passive ability was Tax Collection, which gave a 20% chance of collecting a gold coin when a plant activated their active ability.

Her soulmates were members of the Spike line for a health boost and either members of the Dragon line or members of the Coffee line and Watermelon line together for a damage boost.
