Calendula 
( calendula officinalis )

 Sometimes called the English Marigold, this beautiful little jewel of a plant has an exceptional long lasting flowering season. It will flower all summer long and well into the fall until a hard frost occurs. With single and double flowers of bright orange and golden yellow, it endears itself to most people. It can be planted in a variety of places like tubs, planters, rock gardens, formal gardens and are great for that 'English country garden' look. It is widely cultivated and can be grown easily in sunny locations in most kinds of soils. This plant will willingly re-seed itself and is frost tolerant. It is also resistant to Deer. Calendula is an annual or short-lived herbaceous perennial (if grown in warmer zones) growing from 1 to 3 feet tall.

 Calendula contains high amounts of flavonoids which are plant-based antioxidants that protect the body against cell-damaging free radicals. Researchers are not sure what active ingredients in calendula are responsible for its healing properties, but it appears to have anti-inflammatory, antiviral, and antibacterial effects. Flowers were used in ancient Greek, Roman, Middle Eastern and Indian cultures as a medicinal herb as well as a dye for fabrics, foods and cosmetics.
