TAGETES LUCIDA. The marigolds have surprising properties and uses. Most are familiar with their horticultural value as bedding plants, and their insect-repelling properties are well known, but few would suspect a role as culinary and tea herbs in some Latin American countries.  Smoked by the Hispanics in Mexico as a marijuana substitute... not saying we recommend that...just relaying the facts!  Native to Mexico.

Price: $3.50/pkt
