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

    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. :) 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.
