Calendulas are, arguably, one of the most useful flowers you can grow! They are beautiful cut flowers, pollinators love them, they’re edible, and a powerful medicine in herbal remedies.
Flashback has semi-double 2 to 3 inch blossoms in shades of orange, apricot, rosy-peach and cream, many with petals backed with deep red or maroon.
Soil: Calendula is tolerant of ordinary soil, yet prefers optimal conditions that offer rich, nutritious organic soil. Calendula does well naturalized in meadows and herb gardens, as well as in the flower border. (It reseeds freely!)
Planting: When direct sowing in the garden, or in a seed tray, press seed ½” below the surface of soft soil, cover with soil, press gently, and water. Keep in full sun, lightly watered until germination and plants appear.
Seeds can be started indoors in seed trays 3-4 weeks before frost-free date and transplanted into the garden. For a continuous display, sow several times throughout the spring either in the garden or in seeds trays for transplant.
