Botany picture #151: Tagetes lemmonii

Tagetes lemmonii (Asteraceae), Royal Botanic Gardens of Sydney, 2011. This species comes from North America and is apparently a popular ornamental in some areas. What I found particularly striking about it was the pungent aromatic smell of the foliage; I am always fond of aromatic shrubs, probably because I worked on a genus of Lamiaceae in my Ph.D. project.
