Calendula, Pacific Beauty Mix Organic is rated out of 5 by 1.Rated 5 out of 5 by TexasPorch from Truly lovely & survived my neglect I planted the seeds in November and was happy to see sprouts within a week. It grew steadily all through my relatively mild (rare lows of 26) and as long as I covered it for freezes it didn't mind. It began flowering late February and is a gorgeous bright orange. It really does need 6 hours of sun, but it doesn't seem to mind my neglectful watering habits. I don't expect it to survive the Texas summer, but it's a truly lovely spring flower that was easy to grow from seed.Date published: 2014-03-05
