Tagetes is essentially a weed with deeply divided, dark green leaves with numerous ornamental yellowish-orange carnation-like flowers. Commonly known as a Marigold, Tagetes should not be confused with Calendula (Calendula officials) which goes by the same common name. For millennia, indigenous peoples of South America, particularly Peru, have been using Tagetes as a flavorful beverage, a condiment, and as a decoction made by steeping the dried plant in boiling water to use for the common cold, respiratory distress, and digestive system complaints.
