(Pot marigold) Native to Europe, this hardy plant was brought to North America by early settlers and prized for its saffron like nutty, bitter and spicy flavour of its eye catching orange flowers. Can be tossed in a salad and cooked in an omelette to name a few culinary uses. Its medicinal value is mainly as a topical ointment, promoting fast healing through its antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, astringent and vulnerary actions of its flower. In fact, calendula was a remedy used in the Civil and the first World War as a treatment for gangrene. Flowers can be brewed into a tea and are shown to have antispasmotic, lymphatic, cholagogue and emmenagogue actions. Self-seeding. Sow 5mm deep outdoors after last frost. Full sun-part shade in neutral to slightly acidic soil. Germination 1-2 weeks. Ht 18-24 inches.
