Calendula officinalis

Lovely two-tone peachy flowers in a fully double form! This “Pot Marigold” features myriad rows of petals that are a warm ginger on top and a fiery orange underneath. It has an almost dahlia-like beauty but on a tough, easy-peasy, no-nonsense, ultra-floriferous plant. Forms an 18” tall clump of vibrant green elliptic leaves that serve as an attractive backdrop for a steady parade of eye-catching 2” flowers from mid-Summer till first Frost. It makes a wonderful, long-lasting cut flower and the edible petals make a showy addition to salads. Plant in full sun (coast) to light shade (inland), in fertile well-drained soil. Makes a great plant for containers. Deadhead for prolonged blooming. Attracts butterflies. Deer resistant.
