Calendula officinalis ‘Orange Flash’ (Pot Marigold) [15 Seeds]


Germination Information: Start the seeds, about 1/4 inch deep, indoors in mid to late spring or directly in the garden in late spring to early summer. The last time I grew this strain from (very old!) seeds, I sowed on April 11, indoors on a heat mat, and they began sprouting on April 16. Your experience may vary.

Pot marigolds (Calendula officinalis) aren’t trendy these days, but they are charming and dependable bloomers, particularly where summers don’t get too hot. The plants produce low, leafy foliage clumps that send up 1- to 2-foot-tall stems topped with daisy-form blooms. ‘Orange Flash’ gives this old-fashioned favorite a more elegant touch, with various amounts of bronze to deep red shading on the backs of the petal-like ray flowers, which are various tints and shades of orange . (Just a hint of the dark color is evident when the flowers are fully open, giving many of the outer “petals” a very thin outline and the center a dark cast.) It’s a beauty in the garden, in a container, and as a cut flower for small arrangements. And, as with other pot marigolds, the petals are edible. Full sun for best flowering. Annual.

Collected in September and October 2021. At least 20 seeds.
