Tagetes lemmonii, Tagetes, Lemon Marigold, Copper Canyon Daisy

Tagetes lemmonii

Tagetes, Lemon Marigold, Copper Canyon Daisy
Family: Asteraceae
Origin: Mexico
Small shrub 2-5 ftFull sunModerate waterDry conditionsYellow/orange flowersFragrantAttracts butterflies, hummingbirdsSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

Lemon marigold, Copper Canyon Daisy - usually a small shrub that can be trimmed to a groundcover level, this plant can reach up a few feet if you let it go. It has very aromatic, airy foliage and vibrant yellow daisy-like blooms.

A strong fragrance from the finely divided foliage is released when rubbed or brushed against. Orange-yellow flowers in fall-winter with off bloom in other seasons - flowering is triggered by short day length so overcast weather can extend flowering in spring. Plant in sun or part shade in well-drained soil. Drought tolerant in coastal gardens but looks best with a little irrigation - too much water or too little light produces leggy plants that don't bloom well. One of the best butterfly attractors!

Tagetes is a genus of 51 species of annual and perennial herbaceous plants. They have pinnate green leaves, and white, golden, orange, yellow, to an almost red floral heads.

Depending on the species, marigold foliage has a musky, pungent scent, though some varieties have been bred to be scentless. Marigolds have naturalized in many other warm climate areas all over the world.

The triploid marigolds are sterile hybrids obtained by crossing the Tagetes patulawith the Tagetes erecta. Common but colorful, inexpensive and easy to germinate and grow, there are varieties available in a wide range of heights, hues and flower forms.

Plant marigolds in the vegetable garden where they are said to discourage certain insect pests.
