Enlarge Image

Annual. Loves cool weather! Blooms spring through early summer in cool climates and fall through spring in warm climates. 12-24" tall. Full sun. Zeolight flowers are every-changing chameleons in the garden. They start out with bronzy orange petals that fade to a delicate light pink, artfully contrasting with the yellow base and maroon back. Also called, Pot Marigold, the edible petals are a colorful gourmet addition to salads, eggs, and baked goods. Calendula makes a long-lasting cut flower and can be massed in borders or planted in containers. It is a perfect addition to Cottage Gardens.

When to plant outside: Cold climates: Sow in early spring, as soon as the soil can be worked. Warm climates: Sow in late summer to early fall for winter/spring bloom.

When to start inside: Sow 6-8 weeks before average last frost. Recommended in cold winter climates.

Special Germination Instructions: Calendula seed requires dark to germinate. Sow at depth of ºî to ?î.

Harvesting: To harvest petals, pinch off flower heads then gently pull out the petals. If you wish to dry them for later use, lay them on a tray or large piece of paper in a single layer with good spacing between them to avoid overlapping and discoloration. Then place in a cool, dry location. When thoroughly dry, keep in an airtight container.

Calendula was named 2008 'Herb of the Year' by the International Herb Association. "
