Is it the African marigold that is thought to be effective in discouraging rabbits and chipmunks from munching on the veggie garden? Or, can you suggest the best marigold for this purpose?

I did not find any reference in my research that marigolds repel rabbits.
There is some information that rabbits will eat marigolds.

There are some commercial repellents. Otherwise, I would suggest a physical barrier, and a patch of something they like far away from the veggie patch.
