(Tagetes lucida)

Also known as Texas tarragon and sweet mace, this late-blooming marigold does best in warm climates with a long growing season. Used effectively as a fine culinary tarragon substitute, its licorice-flavored leaves add a new dimension to salads, pesto, sauces, fish and poultry dishes. In Mexico and Guatemala it is a popular tea. Its edible, small yellow flowers last late into the season and add a saffron-like color to food. Medicinal uses: Diuretic, digestive aid, with hypotensive and febrifuge and anesthetic properties. In Mexico it is prepared with chocolate as a tea for treating chills.
