Product Information

Calendula, Pacific Beauty is a prolific variety of calendula great for all gardens. Its golden-yellow flowers are both medicinal and beautiful! Bees and butterflies love it too! The brilliantly colored blooms are bright and fiery. We grow calendula, Pacific Beauty on the farm as a beneficial flower to attract beneficial insects. We also use the edible petals to garnish dishes. If left to reseed in the garden you will notice volunteers the following spring.

Planting by Zones

Zones 9-10

  • Calendula is a cool-season crop that can be grown almost year-round in mild areas of Zones 9 and 10. Start calendula seeds in early spring for blooms as soon as the days lengthen and warm up.

Zones 2-8

  • Sow indoors, 2-3 weeks before the last frost.

Planting Calendula Seeds

  • We recommend that you transplant calendula into the garden after beginning seeds in starter pots. Place the seed on top of quality seed starting soil. Slightly press seeds into moist seed starting mix and cover with 1/4″ of finely sifted soil. Mist gently to water the seeds. Do not water with a heavy spray as this will cover the seeds with displaced soil. 
  • Plant in a full sun location.

Growing Calendula

  • For continuous production, prune dead stems.
  • Calendula reseeds easily.

Growing Calendula in Containers

  • Calendula is beautifully grown in containers; make sure your container is at least 10″ deep. Keep in mind containers will dry out faster because they have more surface area and less soil to hold onto moisture. 

Harvesting Calendula

  • Cut calendula flowers in the early morning for the freshest and longest-lasting cut blooms. Use in dishes, drinks, and salads to add a pop of color.
  • Calendula has been used for centuries as an antifungal and anti-inflammatory herb. Calendula oil is often used to relieve skin irritations such as diaper rashes and eczema. Learn how to make calendula cream here.

Southern California Pro-tips

  • Mulch heavily to ensure the soil stays cool and well-watered.
  • DO NOT overhead water as this promotes disease.
  • Deadhead to encourage more blooms.
  • Protect your crop during heat spells with shade cloth or row cover.
