Flowering Calendula, Orange
The calendula, aka pot marigold, is a great annual option for any gardener looking to add some color to the garden. It grows easily, is low maintenance, and is commonly used in teas. Its bright and full blooms attract all the neighborly insects you would want to fly through your zone.
This bright orange variety grows vigorously, and one plant will give you more blooms than you’ll know what to do with. What a great problem to have! If blooms are left to dry out, your calendulas will regrow for months to come.
