Calendula, Orange King (Calendula officinalis) - 100 Seeds
Calendula officinalis, also known as Pot Marigold, got the name because the dried flowers of the plant were traditionally used in soups and stews to fight off illness. Calendulas are known for many health benefits, but they are most recognized for effectiveness in healing skin problems, such as wounds, burns, insect bites, eczema, shingles and skin ulcers, to name a few.
•American grown seeds
•USDA Zones: 1-12
Direct sow in fall or early spring, planting 1/4" below the surface. To start seeds indoors, plant 1/4" deep in individual pots or a flat. Keep evenly moist and at a temperature of 60-65° until germination which should take place within 2 weeks. Transplant or thin the seedlings. Prefers well drained, poor or average soil, but can adapt to almost any soil. Since it prefers cooler temps, it will appreciate partial shade. Once established, it does not need regular water and overwatering can stunt the blooms. To keep the plant bushy and neat, occasionally pinch off unwanted developing stalks. It may stop blooming during the heat of summer and begin in the fall. Calendula does very well as a container plant.
