Tagetes lemmonii (Copper Canyon Daisy)
Copper Canyon Daisy is a shrubby perennial that features cheerful yellow blooms and has very aromatic (some call it pungent) foliage. It is very drought-tolerant once established and required good drainage. It can handle alkaline and caliche soils, and thrives in hot, dry conditions.
Copper Canyon Daisy blooms mainly in the fall, but it can also flower in the spring. It benefits from light trim in early summer (after the spring flowering) to rejuvenate the plant and encourage fall blooms.
