Calendula Fiesta Gitana Seeds!
This is a favorite cottage garden flower and culinary herb that has become a popular plant for bedding and to provide bright splashes of color in flower borders.
There is a wide choice of colors, based around the yellow and orange spectrum, and forms from simple semi-double to fully double with prominently crested centres.
