During our travels to seed trial grounds around the world, we have rediscovered this heirloom variety, first offered by Thompson & Morgan in 1933. Calendula 'Chrysantha' was a real breeding breakthrough in its time. The bushy, free flowering plants produce masses of double citron-yellow flowers with long, drooping petals that resemble chrysanthemum blooms. Like other pot marigolds, it makes a delightful cut flower, and adds a ray of sunshine to beds, borders and containers. Height: 70cm (28Ó). Spread: 45cm (18Ó).
Culinary note: Some parts of these flowers are edible. For more details about edible flowers click here.
Alternatively, sow indoors from March to April at a temperature of 18-23C (65-73F). When seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant and grow them on in cooler conditions until large enough to plant outdoors. For winter or early spring flowering, sow calendula in late summer or early autumn and grow plants on in a cool greenhouse or conservatory.
