Calendula, Oktoberfest is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 518.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! I have to agree with everyone else here. Once these flowers start to bloom they do not stop. After the weather become cold around October they simply took on a more yellow color but still kept going until a very hard freeze later in the season. Will definitely plant again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good early experience Labeled as easy, I have struggled to get Calendula to grow from seed in our central VA clay. Decided to start indoors this year. In Jiffy peat pots under standard UV light at six inches sixteen hours per day, 50% of seeds germinated. Plants are at six true leave stage and are in clay pots, looking very healthy. Hope to report success later in the summer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these! I planted this flower last year. It survived the late frost in May and bloomed up until the snow started! I am going to purchase the Lemon color this year too!
