Calendula not only provides knockout blooms in the garden, but also can be used to garnish salads and other culinary creations. Growing to be only 24” tall, we love planting Calendula in the front of the meadow or in a small cutting garden near the house, ready to be snipped and added to our favorite meals. Bright yellow and orange flowers ignite the late season garden and are easy to grow. All of the seed we handle at American Meadows is non-GMO, neonicotinoid-free and guaranteed to grow. Annual.

Long a favorite of herbalists, calendula is also one of our edible flowers. During the Middle Ages, it was used to treat headaches and heart ailments. Also called “Pot Marigold”, it was an ingredient for puddings during the 16th and 17th century in Europe. Today, the flowers can be used to decorate cakes and salads. It is also currently one of the top herbs used for medicinal use, particularly in Europe. Flower petals are dried and used for teas. The medicinal qualities of this plant seem to indicate a strengthening of the immune system, and the preparations are used mostly for mouth and throat problems, such as sore throat. It is also helpful in encouraging healing of wounds.

      Comments about American Meadows Calendula Seeds:

      Your seeds are used exclusively at our Children's Petting Zoo. Flowers are used to add to the effect for the children and they love walking through the paths and gardens. We have many groups of ill and injured children and they really love the bright colors that your seeds produce. We love the way the orange and yelow blooms brighten up the paths for the children to wander through.

        I love using these seeds in pots on my patio. I also have a large bed of them in my herb garden. The flower petals are a beautiful addition to summer salads! Added to some almond oil they also make a lovely summer moisturizer. The seeds from American Meadows have an excellent germination rate. I've always been very please with everything I have ordered from them.

          Comments about American Meadows Calendula Seeds:

          Calendula is an easy to grow, easy to care-for wildflower. It covers the ground and keeps other weeds down, is water thrifty, and reseeds without any help from humans or mowing. Calendula is attractive, edible, and a great investment for soapmakers and crafters. Calendula has a tendency to escape beds and enter lawns if seeds are not collected at season's end. Plants require sun and do only fairly in part shade. Dry, poor soil is no match for Caldendula. Seeds are large and easy to plant. There are multiple calendula species, colors, petal configurations, so breeding true is difficult: enjoy variety!

          USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

          To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

          • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
          • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
