GENERAL INFORMATION

  • An easy to grow perennial that is native to Mexico.
  • This herb grows to 70 cm and produces a cluster of erect stems with linear leaves that are 4 cm long and 1 cm wide.
  • The bright golden yellow flowers, 1 cm across, occur in clusters of up to 15 at the top of the plant in summer.
  • The flowers will continue into autumn if the dead flowers are continuously removed.
  • The leaves have a distinct aniseed scent and flavour which is similar to French Tarragon but much stronger.
  • In frost-free areas the plant will continue to grow into winter.
  • Mexican Teragon also known as Sweet Mace, Winter Tarragon, Cloud Plant and Sweet Marigold.

SOIL REQUIREMENT

  • Deep and fertile, pH 6.5 - 7.

FEEDING/FERTILIZER REQUIREMENT

  • Mexican teragon requires no fertilizer.

LIGHT REQUIREMENT

  • Full sun.

WATER REQUIREMENT

  • Water only when the surface of the soil is dry, as Mexican teragon won't tolerate consistently soggy soil.
  • However, don't allow the soil to become bone dry.
  • Water Mexican teragon at the base of the plant, as wetting the foliage may lead to various moisture-related diseases, especially rot.
