CALENDULA – Fiesta Gitana

(250 seeds)

$3.95

(1 customer review)
Edible, beneficial and very colourful
From champagne shades to fiery orange and gold, Fiesta Gitana is a wonderful colour mix for any garden. The fully double flowers are pretty, but they are also edible, and are often used medicinally and as a replacement for saffron in the kitchen. The blooms also last well when cut for the vase. As if all this weren’t enough, Calendulas attract friendly insects to veggie gardens. Tough Calendulas thrive in almost any soil.
