Mexican Tarragon (Tagetes lucida)
(Psychoactive Marigold;Tarragon, Mexican, Tagates)
Native to Mexico and Central America. Plant figures prominently in huichol art, an inspirational and vibrant yellow flower that is used in smoking mixtures. The herb is a remedy of the curanderos, who make a tea infusion for treating the common cold. As a spice, the leaves are a harmless additive to eggs and other protein dishes, rendering them savory, and the flavor is very much tarragon. Plant prefers full sun and dryish soils, and overwinters down to about 10 degrees F.
