Calendula has been popular among gardeners for centuries for good reasons: Easy to grow from seed (and easy to save seeds!), beautiful intense blooms of yellows to reds from June to early autumn, wide medicinal and culinary uses. The name originates with ancient Romans, who saw calendula blooming on the first day (or calends) of each month and thus a useful remedy for irregular menstruation. Calendula was imagined to have magical powers, allowing people to see fairies and helping women choose appropriate mates. More practically, during the Civil War in USA, calendula salve was applied on wounds to stop bleeding and heal—a practice adopted by herbal users today. Additionally calendula petals are delicately flavoured and add flashes of colour to cakes, cookies, rice, tea blends, salads...limited only by your imagination! Direct seed in May/June for blooms summer long.

Flashback is a unique type of Calendula, bred by Frank Morton of Wild Garden Seed. Yellow to orange blooms show their maroon undersides when they close up in the evening and early morning - hence the "flashback" name.
