Calendula officinalis 'Touch of Red Buff'

Calamazag Plant Nursery

£4.00

This is a very attractive calendula. It has creamy petals with a red buff colour on the underside. 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.

Height 60cm/24" x 30cm/12"
