Calendula Radio

Calendula Radio

C$3.50Price

(Pot marigold) Gorgeous flowers look like radio dials! An old European variety first introduced to American gardeners in 1930 by seedsman Henry Dreer of Philadelphia. It has large, almost globular orange flowers that seem to turn like radio dials on the yellow eyes at their centres. The florets, some say, look like the tip of a quill. That this variety is ornamental is undeniable, but it is also an excellent variety for culinary and medicinal use. The petals can be added to soups, salads and rice, and they make excellent lotions and ointments for skin care. Easy to grow in any sunny spot. Ht. 30-45cm/12-18".
