Calendulas have been used for many centuries for culinary and medicinal purposes. Calendula, or Pot Marigold, comes from southern Europe. ‘Pacific Beauty Mix’ is a blend of yellow, orange and golden flowers that are semi-double to fully double. Suitable for cutting, beds and borders, and the pollinator garden. Provide light shade in hot climates during the summer. Prefers rich, moderately moist and well-drained soils. Remove spent flowers to prolong blooming. The flower petals are edible and have a slightly bitter and peppery flavor.
