Calendula flowers are daisy-like and come in colors of orange or yellow with single or double rows of petals. It is easy to grow Calendula Officinalis from flower seed, and it makes a great addition to any garden, offering both flowers and foliage that are edible. The plant has terrific pest-fighting abilities as well. Calendula flowers attract good bugs into the garden and help repel the less desirous bugs. Also called Pot Marigold, Calendula grows quickly from flower seed, blooms heavily, and then dies with the first heavy frost. It will grow in all regions of North America.
