My mom recently got a few seeds and tried planting them. They have now sprouted and flowered and we still have no idea what they are.

My mom thinks they smell a bit like marigolds

That's a marigold. I don't know the variety offhand, but could probably find it somewhere online. :)

Thanks, will try and find the exact variety in that case.

Also, seems this is a variety my mom actually likes (she doesn't like marigold...other then this one)

I personally prefer the medium-sized all yellow ones, myself. That's what I usually grow. I always heard the small reddish and yellow ones referred to as French marigolds. I don't care much for them at all, but I'll grow them if it's all I can find in the nurseries and it's too late to start seeds. :)
