Calendula officinalis
‘Strawberry Blonde’

This striking member of the Flashback series features pale golden flowers with striped, burnt red backsides. Burgundy centers provide a focal point. With row upon row of elliptical petals, this fragrant annual offers both beauty & architectural intrigue. First forming a dense 18” high bush with dark green foliage, come late summer plants produce an endless parade of bewitching blooms. But wait, this flower isn't just a pretty face. It's also edible. They're perfect for adorning salads or using as a spicy side accent. They also make lovely & long lasting cut flowers. Great for adding color to an autumn bed, compact enough to grow in containers & a fabulous way to attract butterflies to your garden. A no-fuss no-muss plant, this beauty loves the sun & will grow in a wide variety of soils. Deadheading prolongs the blooming period. May overwinter in zones 10 & 11. Deer resistant.
