Calendula, Flashback Mix

Availability: In stock (9)

The colors are what makes these flowers such a charming attraction! The stunning hues of peach, apricot, orange, vanilla and yellow, sometimes bicolored or tricolored, captivate the eye. At sunset, the petals fold up for the night to reveal flashy red or maroon backsides. As with most calendulas, they will do better in a sunny spot. This is a wonderful choice to start with -- and remember that calendulas have many medicinal and culinary uses. Another wonderful selection from plant breeder Frank Morton.
