A multicolored blend of gorgeous calendulas.

A mix of orange, apricot and peachy doubled petals, all with red backing to create a distinctive contrast. Colors fade to bicolor yellows or yellow-peach, adding interest as the plants mature. Blooms withstand light fall frosts; still look good in October.

The petals have long been used as an edible garnish, and natural food dye. Calendula is also a widely used medicinal plant (especially for inflammation and to prevent infections) with some anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties. Flavor is tangy and slightly bitter. Remove the petals from the flower base before consuming as the base can be quite bitter.

Days to Maturity: 50-55 DAYS
