Calendula- Flashback Mix - plant starter
These carefree, early blooming flowers shine happily on sturdy branching plants. Flashback offers semi-double 2 to 3 inch blossoms in satiny shades of orange, apricot, rosy-peach and cream, many with petals backed with deep red or maroon.
Petals of the flowers can be used fresh or dried in soups, soufflés, rice dishes, baked goods, and to garnish desserts. Calendula is a popular choice for brightening up salad mix. Flavor is tangy and slightly bitter. Remove the petals from the flower base before consuming as the base can be quite bitter.
