Mexican marigolds (Mexican "tarragon")

By Anonymous

This summer, I discovered this robust substitute for French tarragon! I bought a large pot of it, and planted it in the garden. I love it, and have dried a lot of it.

With winter approaching, I hate to say goodbye to this beautiful plant. I've considered potting it up and bringing it indoors to over-winter under fluorescent lights. I've read that Mexican marigold will die back during cold outdoor weather, then send up new growth in the spring. If I bring it indoors, will it continue to thrive, or will this just kill it?
