Tagetes lucida (Mexican Mint Marigold, Spanish Tarragon)

Height: 1-2 feet
Spread: 2 feet
Light: Sun
Soil: Will tolerate poor, dry soils.
Description: Green foliage forms into a neat, upright, shrub. Leaves are edible and make a great substitute for French tarragon in cooking! Butter yellow flowers bloom in September and October. This is a must-have for herb-gardeners as it thrives in the heat of the south, unlike tarragon which often goes dormant in the summer. This tender perennial likes full sun and a well protected site in order to overwinter here.
