Mexican Mint Marigold has aromatic leaves which are often used as a substitute for French Tarragon. Sweet licorice flavor brightens salads and main dishes. The edible, pretty, golden-yellow flowers bloom all summer. Thrives in warmer climates where French tarragon will not grow. Also known as sweet mace or Mexican tarragon.
Try steeping the leaves in sweetened rice vinegar for use as a vinaigrette or seasoning for fish or chicken. The flowers are also edible: Use the flowers to garnish desserts and drinks with the same sweet licorice flavor as the leaves.
Likes sun and a periodic deep watering and drying out. Pinching back the stems will result in healthier bushier growth.
