Description

Tree marigolds (Tagetes lemmonii) are also known as mountain marigolds, Mexican bush marigolds and tangerine marigolds. They're delightful, vigorous, tough plants that grow as sprawling large bushes or small trees to 1.5m with narrow, strongly segmented green leaves that smell like lemon, mint and tangarine combined. Flowers are bright golden yellow and appear in autumn and winter providing bright splashes of colour for many months and add winter colour to your garden. Dry leaves and flowers and add them to potpourri and scented sachets, just for their scent and colour but also for their pest repellent qualities. In the garden the roots will help to repel soil nematodes while the leaves repel and confuse a range of air-borne pests including whitefly, carrot fly, white butterfly and pumpkin beetles.
