Calendula - Pacific Beauty Mixed Colors, Calendula officinalis.
This heat resistant variety bears extra-large blooms that are graceful and less formal than the regular strains. Longer and straighter stems, clearer colors with a wide range from creamy white shading to a soft light yellow through pure lemon yellow, and two-tone apricot effect to a true persimmon-orange.
Calendula Pacific Beauty thrives in cool temperatures but satisfactory results may be obtained by sowing as late as early July.
