Marsh Marigold (Caltha palustris)
Marsh Marigold is one of the first plants to bloom in the spring, long before most marginals wake up. Bright yellow flowers with dark green glossy foliage welcomes water gardeners to a new pond season. This plant does well in full sun or partial shade. In cool climates it will grow spring through fall and possibly re-bloom during the season. In warmer areas it will wilt back when the summer is hot, but will begin growing again with the cooler weather in fall.
