Description:

Found this field of Corn Marigolds at the Garlic Farm, along with many other wild flowers of arable fields. The local names for this wonderful plant are
"Bozzom" and "Botherum".Generally in decline on the IOW, but sometimes found in great abundance, turning fields golden. I know it by the older name of Chrysanthemum segetum.
