- For more information about this character, see Marigold
Marigold returns in this game, but only appears in the Zen Garden and cannot be planted in-game. Unlike in Plants vs. Zombies, she does not have many different colored variants. The player starts out with the first Marigold as a tutorial.
When it grows to full size (hmin) it will spew out 500 coins in the form of 5 large gold coins. These each give $100, like small gold ones. The large shape is just cosmetic. After giving coins, the Marigold disappears.
Marigolds give you coin rewards in Zen Garden.
Marigold has dedicated herself to the Zen lifestyle. She's a team player, and gives it her best there in the garden. But if she never has to confront another zombie on the lawn again it will be too soon.
Due to only being in the Zen Garden, there isn't too much to strategize around her. If you need coins fast, prioritize growing Marigolds if they appear in the garden, as she gives more coins than a normal plant.
- There is a glitch in the loading screen where the petals will not animate correctly and results in her head looking like a snowflake. It happens when the device is lagging.
- There is a glitch in Zen Garden that when the player waters a Marigold, closes the Zen Garden, and then returns, she will disappear.
- According to the Almanac, the reason she is Zen Garden exclusive is because she dislikes fighting the zombies.
- Before the 2.4.1 update, her Almanac description said that she can sometimes give gems. However, she was not able to do so in any update.
- In a Gargantuar Party Week trailer Plants vs. Zombies Facebook page, she is seen in normal gameplay. However, this Piñata Party was never shown.
- She is the only plant that cannot be planted on the lawn normally.
