General Information

"Marigold" is derived from "Mary's Gold", and the plant is associated with the Virgin Mary in Christian stories.

It is said to deter some common insect pests (although it is recorded as a food plant for some Lepidoptera larvae including Dot Moth), as well as nematodes.

The species Tagetes lucida, known as "Pericón" is used to prepare a sweetish, anise flavored tea in Mexico. The tea can be used to cure stomach illnesses, but can cause hallucinations when consumed in large amounts.
