Tagetes lemmonnii, 35 seeds
A true and easy-to-grow perennial Marigold that hails from southern North Ameria all the way down to Mexico, this is yet another rarely seen Tagetes species that will change your opinion of plants in that genus if all the Marigolds you have seen before are the annual kinds. This one forms an evergreen, bushy shrub with an airy feel due to its delicately filigreed foliage. Like its cousin T. nelsonii, the lacy leaves exude a fragrance when rubbed against -- some have described it as like tangerine and some said it is like mint with a hint of camphor, but frankly, compared to T. nelsonii, the scent is not as obvious/strong (which may or may not be a bad thing, :-)). Though touted as autumn through winter flowering, the blooming season often extends through spring. Flowers are typial orangy-yellow daisy-shaped, but bigger than T. nelsonii's. Very tolerant of heat, drought and poor calcareous soil Hardy from zone 8 onwards. Full sun to part shade. 6 feet tall and wide. Well-drained soil. Hard-to-find seeds, harvested 05/2016 & 10/2016.
