Apricot Beauty Calendula (Calendula officinalis) Another old-fashioned flower variety gifted to us from Emil & Elsie Byrka of Morden, MB , Apricot Beauty displays a creamy apricot explosion of densely petaled flowers. As flowers begin to fully open they reveal more of a creamy-orange colour from their initial orange hue. Stems are multi-branched and quite tall making it ideal for cut flowers. A very beautiful and hardy variety that produces blooms well into the post-frost days of late autumn.

Planting Instructions: Start indoors 6-8 weeks before last frost date. Broadcast seed on top of soil and lightly cover with dome or plastic film until emergence. Keep under full light and harden plants off 7-10 days before lining out. Seeds can be sown outdoors in the late fall to enhance spring germination.
