More info

Tagetes lemmonii, commonly known as Mexican Marigold, is a prolifically flowering evergreen shrub with bright dainty yellow flowers appearing in Fall/Winter.  It will get 5-6 feet tall by about 7 feet wide, taking an open mounded shape.  The foliage is very fragrant when touched.  Tagetes lemmonii can be planted in full sun to part shade, is very drought tolerant, and deer resistant.  Be careful not to overwater Mexican Marigold or it will begin to look leggy.  Prune this shrub back as necessary to keep the foliage coming back tightly.  Typically two to three times a year is desired.  Native from northern Mexico to Arizona, typically in higher elevations from about 5,000 feet and above.
