It kinda looks like it Razz They are yellow or orange and the blossom head looks snipped and curly like a football mum. I've also heard them called "Lunacy"

That would probably be Tagetes erecta 'Mumsy Gold'

http://parkseed.com/marigold-mumsy-gold/p/51444-PK-P1/ has them for $2.95 for a packet of 50

A marigold that has been hanging around garden mums and because it's so big, thinks it too, is a garden mum. Spacing flowers apart will prevent this erroneous psychological disorder by marigolds. Smile Did anyone believe that?

I've seen those at walmart I believe. Or something that looked like it. I called it the expensive marigold when we were browsing. Haha they are very pretty they don't smell as strong.
