Availability: In Stock
The calendula, an old, English-cottage-garden flower popular since Shakespearean times, is a long-blooming, charming addition to any modern garden. Its gold and orange flowers bloom from spring to fall on fairly drought-tolerant plants. Grow it for its sunny beauty in the garden, then save some blooms for fresh or dried floral arrangements; dried petals can be used in baking or teas. Calendula gets its common name, pot marigold, because the flower resembles a marigold, and has often been used in pots of soup or stew for both color and flavor. Fresh petals add beauty to salads or egg dishes.

I had heard about the healing properties of calendula, but had no idea how beautiful and easy to grow they are! I love this colorful mix, still undecided which my favorites are... The plants have so many blossoms, each with layers of petals, that I can pluck petals for infusions and still have full blooms. And they're working great as companion plantings, in the tomato patch and circling many of our fruit trees.
