The Yellow Marigold is a dye material and a type of Plant that grows above-ground on grass in the Forest biome. It can only be harvested with a Pickaxe. Its sole purpose is to make Yellow Dye.

This and other dye materials can also be sold to an NPC as a good early-game source of coins.

  • Although Yellow Marigolds are available in placed form on the 3DS3DS version version, breaking one never yields an item.
  • On the Desktop version Desktop version, Using a Dye Vat to craft two Yellow Dyes is more profitable than just selling the Yellow Marigold on its own because both dyes sell for 20 silver each.
