Irish Lace Marigold
Tagetes filifolia 'Dropshot'
Uses: Culinary/Beverage/Aromatic Duration: Annual
When to Sow: Spring Ease of Germination: Easy
Terrific for borders and for fragrance. Fine lacy leaves are intensely anise-scented. Grows in small compact bushes to 15-25cm (6-10"), excellent for edgings. The fresh leaves can be used in drinks, teas, salads, and on seafood. Native of Latin America, from Mexico to Argentina. Why it is called "Irish Eyes" we have no idea, but we do know that it does not come from Ireland. A very special herb that deserves experimentation in the kitchen! Thrives in most soils, from light sandy soils to heavy clay as long as they drain well. Start seeds early indoors and transplant to the garden the threat of frosts has passed.
