Tagetes lemmonii Martin’s Mutant
This is a mutant of the Mexican Marigold collected in California. The leaves are twisted and puckered and slightly grey green in appearance. Light and airy it still carries the pungent aroma of its parent, forming an elegant shrub if kept away from the frosts. We use as foliage foil in the exotic garden and has quickly become one of our favourites. Tender. 1m. H3.
