Description: Most people don’t think of using Marigold’s when flavoring their favorite dishes but that’s what Tarragon is.  It is a member of the same family but has an anise scent and a licorice flavor.  Tarragon leaves are small, dark green and herbaceous.  The flowers only bloom in areas that have a later winter and are golden in color but their grassy flavor is not desirable.

Spacing: Plant 12″ to 15″ apart.

Height: Grows 18″ to 24″ tall.

How To Grow: Plant in full sun.

Outstanding Features: Use Tarragon leaves to flavor vinegar, sauces and salads.  It is popular in Southwest cuisine.

Tips: Drought tolerant.  Thrives in warm, sunny areas that are well-drained.

Uses: Culinary Herb, Garden Bed, Containers, Xeriscapes
