(Tagetes lucida) Enjoy this late-blooming marigold in teas, drinks; a great flavoring for many dishes. This old Hispanic heirloom is hard to find nowadays, but is still a great garden plant that is easy to grow and quite flavorful.

What are the pros? easy to grow
What are the cons? none
This anise/tarragon scented plant is easy to grow in the hot, dry summers of the San Joaquin Valley. It seems to die back after the winter frost, but comes back quickly with new growth in the spring. My original plant is now 4 years old: I cut it back to about 4 inches in November now, and in April I have new foot long growth, double in bushiness to the previous year. It's about 2 feet tall by late summer, and there are still plenty of blooms for El Dia Day Los Muertos in the fall. Pest free, amazing scent, a sprig on my collar seems to be a decent mosquito repellent, too! Fish, poultry, tea, vegetable broth.

Beautiful flowers in the fall and wonderful scent and flavor all year long. This is tarragon flavor for the south where the other tarragon won't grow. It is especially good in chicken salad, in particular, the fruited kind. It's also great under the skin of a baked chicken.
