Calendula Strawberry Blonde boasts a beautiful antique inspired look that is perfect for a cottage garden or cheerful border planting. Open faced daisy, disk type flowers explode with abundant layered petals. Petals have an ombre effect, starting yellow close to the center eye, then transitioning to a delicate pink-apricot color with contrasting underside of warm maroon, giving the blooms a bold, three-dimensional effect. Flowers float in abundance atop upright, 24" inch bushy plants. Well known for its medicinal properties, Calendula is also edible and Strawberry Blonde makes a superb addition to fresh salads or as a noteworthy side garnish to dress up special dishes. A super star in the cut flower world, this variety is used both fresh and dried.
Packet: 50 seeds.
