Calendula officinalis 'Snow Princess'
This is a very attractive calendula. It is pale yellow with dark cream centre. 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 August.
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.
Height 45cm/18" x 30cm/12"
