(Calendula officinalis) Hardy annual. Often self-sows.
Playtime Mix Calendula
Amazing splashy mix of colors and forms adds flair to our favorite functional flower. This playful medley includes warm tones from creamy pastels to bright orange, pink and bronze and petals in single, semi and fully double forms. The best mixture we have grown and it produces loads of color over a long season.
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.
Snow Princess Calendula
Behold an almost pure white calendula that will undergo a beautiful transformation right before your eyes! Unopened blooms are a lemon curd yellow as the petals unfurl; a brilliant almost pure white is revealed with a dark center--a stunning contrast! This fascinating flowering show will continue from late spring through the fall on tidy 2 foot plants.
Strawberry Blonde Calendula
Calendula is incredibly versatile with boundless culinary, healing, pest repelling and ornamental properties. We love this new twist on the traditional calendula; soft yellow-pink petals have a surprise cerise color on their backs. This dual color pattern gives the blooms a bold, three-dimensional effect. An excellent companion plant for tomatoes in the garden or containers!
