Question From: Naples, Florida, United States
Q: I live in naples fl and would like a marigold to repell mosquitos and would like it to be a perranial. which variety of marigold would you suggest? Thank you

A: There are many plants that repel mosquitoes. Problem is the repelling odor is only effective within a few inches from the plants. There are over 200 species of marigolds and some are annuals and others perennial. Do a Google search of the variety names available at your garden center to find out which are which.
