Cempasúchil is one name for "Tagetes erecta" or Mexican marigold.

It was originally used by the Aztecs in their religious ceremonies, and is still used in the Christian ceremonies of Día de los Muertos (All Souls' Day) on November 2.

It's also a good source of the food coloring and dietary supplement lutein.

Since pre-Columbian times, altars to honor the dead were setup by several native civilizations, including the Aztecs, Mayans, Olmecs or Teotihuacans. These cultures used to setup these altars with food, toys, and flowers. The most common type of flower at the time was the Mexican marigold or Cempazuchitl. After the conquest of Mexico by Spanish conquistadors, the tradition became intermixed with the Catholic All Souls' Day, thus becoming Day of the Dead.
