Mexican Tarragon has glossy, liquorice-scented leaves.
The plant is a perennial, but cannot survive temperatures below 20 F / -6 C.
It grows 2 feet (60 cm) tall, and 12 inches (30 cm) wide.
In the fall, it flowers with 1/2 inch (1 cm) wide yellow blossoms, which have no taste.
The leaves will about 1 1/2 inches (4 cm) long and 2 inches (5 cm) long.
Mexican Tarragon can be used in place of tarragon, but using a little less, as it can taste a little more anisey than tarragon, though it lacks the spiciness overall that French tarragon has.
It can also be used for tea.
