Calendula officinais Item #1069 Annual. This old English cottage garden flower is a long-blooming charming addition to any modern garden. Its gold and orange flowers bloom from spring until after the first light fall frost. Grow it for its sunny beauty in containers, borders, or parking strips. 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 is often used in pots of soup or stew for both color and flavor. Fresh petals add beauty to salads or egg dishes. Deer resistant.
