What are the pros? Best of all calendulas, tasty!
What are the cons? what's not to like?
I plant many varieties of calendula every year, both in the greenhouse and in the gardens outdoors. I have fallen in love with orange king. The pictures in the catalogues are not as beautiful as they grow in the borders of my onion and bush bean rows. The plants really spread out and get large- to two and a half feet tall and three feet wide and the blooms are large, mostly doubles, almost a neon orange. The blooms come on early and just keep coming! Even through 25 degree nights here, and they are still blooming now ( early October) as we are having warmer rainy days with temps in the 35 to 60 degree range. They are producing abundant seeds, which the songbirds and blackbirds are enjoying as they are preparing to head south, so I expect to see plenty of volunteers come spring. I will definitely be planting these calendulas every year. My grandsons vote the flower petals the best tasting of the calendula varieties I grow, also.
