Calendula officinales (‘Pink Surprise’)

Life: Annual

Size: 20-24"

Light: Full Sun

Water: Average, Well Drained

Soil: Any

The flowers are ruffled, up to 3" wide, and, though mostly light orange to apricot in color, they have a definite, delicate pink tinge to the petals. They love the cool weather from fall to spring and only need protection during a severe cold spell. Their long stems make excellent, long-lived cut flowers, and in fact the more flowers that are cut off, the more new blooms will be created. Deadhead spent flowers to promote new buds.
