Signet Marigold (Tagetes tenuifolia) 'Lemon Gem' grows easily from seed and produces abundant bright yellow, small blossoms all season long. The leaves are fine-textured, almost fern-like. Like most Marigolds, it is a useful companion plant in the garden, helping to repel tomato hookworm, asparagus beetle, and some nematodes. 'Lemon Gem' does well in full sun.
