The longest flowering and best double pot marigold that we have grown on our trial grounds! Sturdy, dwarf, multi-branching plants produce large, luminous blooms, to brighten summer borders and containers. The daisy-like flowers of Calendula 'Candyman Yellow' are excellent for cutting and can also be added to salads as an edible flower. Quick and easy to grow, calendula copes in almost any garden situation, and even grows well in coastal areas. Height: 25cm (10"). Spread: 30cm (12").
Culinary note: Some parts of these flowers are edible. The light peppery taste of the flowers can be added to breads for extra flavour with a touch of colour. Can also be used as a substitute for saffron when colouring rice dishes.
