Grow Herbs – Plant Mexican Tarragon Seeds
Mexican Tarragon is a wonderful addition to any herb garden, as it blooms in the summer and fall when all other herbs are waning. These flowers are purely ornamental, while the glossy leaves are licorice scented and flavored. In warm climates it is a good substitute for French Tarragon, which often withers in heat, as it has a flavor quite similar to Tarragon, with a touch of anise. Treated like an annual in cold winter regions, Mexican Tarragon is a perennial in warmer zones where it may die down and then sprout back in spring.
