    My water Marigold started dyeing out already, isn't too early in the season?

    No. As soon as it gets hot marsh marigold gives up the ghost.

    Doesn’t it sort of go dormant, and come back when the weather gets cooler? I had read that, and was really worried about planting it here in Zone 8-ish. I’ve had some in my turtle-bog in the past, but because of several renovations I’ve done, I never gave it a chance to naturalize. Would like to try it again — but gotta quit renovating the darn turtle-bog — I lose more plants that way!

    Thanks @Lisak1 , I've had that plant for as long as I've had the pond, but I never noticed when it went dormant probably because it never grew as tall as it did this year (gave up chemical)

    @Mmathis mine comes back every year and it's the first plant to bloom.

    Mine doesn’t revitalize - just dies back and returns in the spring.
