Calendula officianalis

One of the easiest medicinal herbs to grow, harvest, and incorporate into your wellness plan! Fresh and dried calendula flowers make wonderful tea that is oh so good for you. Dried calendula flowers keep their terrific orange color for years. Excellent as a self-sowing annual, plant these once and you’ll never have to worry about planting them again. Attractive to pollinators and deliciously fragrant, they make wonderful cut-flowers and thrive just about anywhere you put them!
