Tagetes lemmonii Tangerine Scented Marigold

Close up of Tagetes lemmonii flowers

This delicate single petal marigold is a perennial landscape plant in Zones 8 and up. Unlike its diminutive cousin, the common annual marigold of bedding plant fame, Tangerine Scented Marigold (also called Lemmon's Marigold) is a large plant that blooms in early fall until frost. It will be covered with flowers the entire time.


Tagetes lemmonii

Other unusual perennial Marigolds are the fragrant, culinary  perennial Tagetes nelsonii, referred to as the Citrus Scented Marigold, and the tasty culinary perennial Spanish Tarragon, Tagetes lucida

Tangerine Scented Marigold is one of the six plants chosen to be in our Zone 8 Fragrant Herb Garden Six Pack.
