Calendula - Zeolight
Fantastically beautiful, fully doubled blooms are a boiling complex of color, with maroon petal backs and pastel faces of orange sherbert and pink washing into yellow at the petal bases. This is a tidy Calendula bred in the Pacific Northwest that grows to only 30cm (12") tall. Deadhead spent flowers for a longer bloom period and a tidier look. Zeolights organic Calendula bloom all summer long, and are worth trying in patio containers. All Calendula varieties produce flowers with edible petals. Try sprinkling some over a summer salad to create huge visual appeal.
Sow seeds 5mm (¼”) deep, and aim for a spacing of 15-45cm (6-18″) between plants.
