Calendula Zeolights Organic Seeds

Calendula officinalis

Item #2009

Annual. A new twist on the old English cottage garden flower, this fancy beauty makes other calendulas look plain. Bronzy orange petals fade to a delicate light pink, artfully contrasting with the yellow base and maroon back. Add the petals to salads and sandwiches or use as a garnish for a pretty touch.
Deer resistant.
