Spectacular mix of colors with bicolor petals.

The undersides of the petals are a muted burgundy giving the 1 1/2–3″ flowers a unique, flashy appearance. An excellent mix of colors; high percentage of double and semidouble flowers on long, strong stems. Also known as pot marigold, common marigold, and Scotch marigold.

  • Edible Flowers: Petals of the flowers can be used fresh or dried in “flower confetti,” soups, soufflés, rice dishes, baked goods, and to garnish desserts. Calendula is a popular choice for brightening up salad mix. Flavor is tangy and slightly bitter. Remove the petals from the flower base before consuming as the base can be quite bitter.
