This dainty blossomed plant forms a ferny mound 12 inches tall and as big around. The lacy lemon-scented foliage releases its fragrance when brushed. The single, lemon yellow small, half inch diameter flowers are considered the best tasting of all the marigolds. Many people who do not like other marigolds admire the delicacy of this gem. The edible flowers have a spicy tarragon flavor adding zest and color to a green salad. Ideal for planter boxes or an excellent border plant it flowers the entire summer into fall. If bloom slows during the summer cut back the plants by one-third to encourage additional blossoms during the cool fall weather.
