Calendula Bronze Beauty is an exceptional mix of bi-color, ombre, disk-shaped blooms featuring a unique blend of creamy peach flowers with deep plum, contrasting picotee edges and a dark chocolate center eye. A floral artists favorite makes this a "must grow" variety for cut flower growers. One of the fastest flowers to bloom in just 60 days, this hardy annual will be one of the first to start a flush of color in the garden each spring. Regular deadheading encourages an extended bloom season. Calendula is a centuries old staple in herbal and natural medicine used in tinctures and healing salves. The flower petals are edible and add a colorful touch to salads or as a sprinkled garnish in soups or stews. Packet: 50 seeds.
