Description

Calendula - Flashback -Calendula officinalis

Hardy AnnualThese carefree, casual flowers bloom brightly on sturdy branching plants. Flashback offers double and semi-double 2 - 3" blossoms in satiny shades of orange, apricot, rosy-peach and cream, with many bi-colors and petals backed with deep red or maroon. They add sparkle to country-style bouquets and lure visiting summer butterflies. Calendulas have been used for centuries in soothing lotions and salves. Their edible petals make colorful salad garnishes.

Soil & Water:Prefer well drained soil in full sun.

Planting & Growing: Calendulas bloom best in cool weather, so plant in early spring. Sow seeds 1" apart, cover 1/2" deep, firm soil and keep seed bed moist. Germination takes 1 - 2 weeks. After seedlings are well established, thin or transplant 8" apart to allow for good air circulation and discourage mildew. To start early indoors, sow seeds 1" apart in a container of seed starting mix and cover 1/2" deep. Keep evenly moist as seedlings emerge and provide a good light source until ready to plant outdoors. Transplant when seedlings are about 2-3" tall after gradually acclimating plants to outdoor conditions.

Calendulas can be sown again in midsummer for fall bloom.

Harvesting & Storage: Cut in full bloom for bouquets or salads.
