Shrub Marigold


Shrub Marigold
Tagetes lemmonii
(TAG-e-teez) (lem-mon-ee-eye)
Synonyms: Mexican Bush Marigold, Mount Lemmon Marigold, Copper Canyon Daisy

The fabled Southern California weather is certainly living up to its hype. It has been so beautiful with temperatures in the high 70’s (F) and a little bit of breeze. Yesterday we spent most of the day touring the South Coast Botanical Gardens . I would give the place six stars out of five. We really loved the rustic areas as well as the more landscaped gardens. It is a great collection of plants that is well maintained (perfect combination for a botanical garden). There were a lot of plants I had never seen before as well as some old friends.

This Marigold was really cool. It had run a little rampant but still looked good and had a lot of flowers. It grows quite tall and was giving off a lemon scent.

I like the appearance of the Mediterranean beach daisies! What a lovely groundcover.
