Mexican Tarragon is a perennial growing to 80cm with leaves with a sweet aniseed flavour. Use the leaves fresh or dried in tea or salads, or serve with chicken or fish. Yellow daisy-like flowers appear in late spring and early autumn. It is a different species and more heat-tolerant than Russian or French tarragon and thrives in hot, dry conditions with well-drained soil in full sun. Also known as 'Sweet Mace' or 'Mexican Marigold Mint', it is a relative of marigolds and sunflowers and makes a good companion plant for tomatoes.
