This hardy self-seeding heirloom, aka “African Marigold” is a must-have for every home garden. Prolific, pollinator friendly, long-lasting bright orange flowers make great companion plants, cut flowers and fabric dye.
Direct seed 1/2" deep, 1" apart in May, or plant indoors 5-6 weeks before transplanting out. Calendula likes full sun and average soil, flowers in summer and fall, reseeds itself and can handle light frosts. Deadhead for continuous blooming.
