    My thinking has been that Marigold and Yellow Duke of Windsor were seperate cultivars. I've also heard that they are the same plant. What I am growing as Yellow Duke od Windsor, does not resemble the Marigold in Dr B. Frank Brown's 2nd book. There is no photo of Yellow Duke of Windsor in the book for comparison. This plant came from the West Coast, propogated by Phil.

    Can someone shed so light? Or compound the confusion, LOL :D

    At least its something to talk about ;)

    Marigold and Yellow Duke are the same plant. I believe there's something about this in the 1960 book.
