Organic Remembrance Edible Calendula Mix
75 days to harvest | Calendula officinalis
Perhaps the easiest to grow and most prolific edible flower of all time, calendula is always beautiful but Remembrance Mix is gorgeous. We love to toss these petals on salads, cakes and gazpacho all summer!
What’s in a name? For years we’ve been collaborating with Nathaniel of Remembrance Farm in Trumansburg, increasing the color and petal abundance in his calendula so he can add vivid, delicious diversity to his signature “Flower Power” salad mix,.
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. 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.
