Bright yellow medium-sized daisies, with an occasional orange bloom just to keep things lively! This variety has the highest concentration of resins of any known type, which makes it the most potent for any of calendula’s many herbal uses! The yellow flowers also make a renowned yellow traditional dye.

What are the pros? Beautiful, easy to grow

What are the cons? none

Review:

I chose this variety of calendula for its skin care value. The plants are quite tall--around 4 feet, with hundreds of smaller than usual flower heads all over. I have these planted in the vegetable garden and they are always covered in pollinators, which is a definite plus. I can't wait to try making calendula oil and skin balm with the dried petals!

What are the pros? very hardy, long lasting bloom

What are the cons? none

Review:

I originally seeded these throughout my veggie garden, and they provided cheerful little spots of color throughout (mixed with the oopsy daisy calendulas). They survived a hasty transplanting - I had to move and transplant my whole garden. I placed them along my front walk (I just cut out the grass in a small trench and filled with soil and planted) and they are thriving. Not needy for water or weeding, they'll survive through anything!

What are the pros? tons of blooms & seeds

What are the cons? leggy

Review:

I got these as they are supposed to be the best for medicinal use. I was a little disappointed at the bloom size, but they bloomed well past when everything else was closing up, and even started re-seeding new volunteers which I took inside to grow in a pot. (They aren't too happy inside, even in front of a window.) The petals keep their color well once dry, so they will be lovely in soaps and such. It became part of my morning routine to go out every few days and collect the petals from the blooms that had already been pollenated and were starting to wilt, and it took a while since there were so many. They get a big leggy, but they also create vertical interest since they are so tall. I look forward to seeing how many come up from the dropped seeds while I'm starting seeds indoors for the front yard.

What are the pros? So many blooms

What are the cons? Does need support

Review:

Planted these on request for an elderly family member who uses this flower for herbal remedies. I started in seed trays under lights in March because I wanted early blooms, and started plenty (two dozen) because I had no experience with calendula. Well, all the starts thrived, so come late April/early May I had to plant a dense patch, with a row-cover tent over it because of our cold and wet spring this year. Gave it plenty of compost, a little organic fertilizer. Fast forward to early summer and WOW. Picture perfect field of constant blooms. Ants and rabbits are eating other things but they've left this alone. The density has kept them from falling over (ones on the edges sometimes tip over), while the flowers are coming so prolifically that the recipient can't hardly keep up with picking them, she loves them. Plenty are going to seed and will hopefully keep a patch going with some volunteers.

What are the pros? Easy, edible, beautiful, hardy

What are the cons? plants get heavy and fall over

Review:

Gorgeous. Easy. Edible flowers and leaves. Grows well into fall, even surviving snow for several weeks. Plants that had protection are still growing at the end of December in this mild winter weather (50*F). Flowers are easy to 'candy' and leaves are delicious fresh in salads. The texture is reminiscent of spinach and the taste is like lettuce with a tiny bit of bitterness. Seeds are easy to collect.
