Sometimes called ‘pot marigold,’ the calendula is a lovely annual flowering plant that thrives in sunny, warm weather. The large, edible blooms have a peppery and somewhat bitter taste that can be used in salads or in teas. We especially love the Pacific Beauty mix because it contains a variety of colors ranging from creamy yellow to bright orange! Because these are great for attracting pollinating insects, we recommend planting calendula near fruit trees and gardens.
