65 days to harvest Calendula officinalis

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.

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.

Know that all calendula varieties are rowdy self-sowers, quickly becoming carpets of calendula when let go to seed; harvesting flowers and/or seeds frequently will maintain the balance beautifully.
