Bursting with medicinal resins, Resina is easy to grow from Alaska to Florida as well as in any soil & any sun, even partial shade. All calendula varieties have these resins, but Resina is off the charts. You’ll know it as soon as you go to harvest her gorgeous flowers and your fingers are sticky with all those medicinal resins. Oils and salves with her infused flowers heal wounds and aching muscles.
Calendula is also remarkably drought-tolerant, making her perfect for containers and exceedingly cold-tolerant, so we consistently have a few calendula flowers to tuck on our holiday salads. Calendula is a relatively compact plant, not exceeding 2′ tall and wide, so she’s lovely for companion planting, as well.
