Calendula officinalis 'Sunset Buff'
This is a very attractive calendula. It has soft apricot petals with a glimmering deep red reverse.This variety can be grown in pots as well as the garden.
Calendula need to be planted in well drained soil in a sunny spot. They flower June until October.
As well as a superb summertime cut flower, they are a great 'companion plant' to grow alongside your vegetables as they attract hoverflies (well known to love eating aphids).
The petals are edible and make great decoration for salads.
