The ‘Resina’ variety contains the highest amounts of the resins that make Calendula such a useful addition to any kitchen garden medicine chest. A great plant to have “just in case”, and in the meantime fresh petals as a garnish make any dish more festive. Sow it once and it reseeds forever (without becoming invasive), bringing its beneficial charm to the garden year after year in a cheering, helpful way that never becomes invasive. This is a mixed population of orange- and yellow-flowered plants.
Culture: Prefers full sun, does fine with low to average water.
Saving Seed: Let the seeds dry on the plants.
