I’m Thankful for Lemmon’s Marigold

Spotted at the Huntington Ranch: Lemmon’s Marigold (Tagetes lemmoni), a four to six foot wide schrub native to Arizona and northern Mexico. More info on this beautiful plant here. I want one in my garden!

  1. What a lovely plant! I’m feeling a little bit of plant envy coming on – this marigold isn’t hardy enough to survive here in the Northeast.
    I do love the cold weather and don’t do well in temperatures over 80┬░ish, but there are an awful lot of beautiful plants I’d love to grow, but just can’t, because they won’t survive zone 4. (Sigh)

    I hope you and all Root Simple readers had a fabulous Thanksgiving!

  2. This is gorgeous! I’ll have to do some info digging…it might do OK here in NM, but maybe not…hmmm…
    Regardless – Thanks for the inspiration!
