Calendula is one of my favorite herbs for promoting skin health! It is also a gorgeous flower and very easy to grow in your garden. The seeds are generally easy to find where ever you buy seeds.
Sometimes Calendula called ‘marigold’ or ‘pot marigold’. Though a different genus, Marigolds (Latin name: tagetes) and Calendula (Latin: Calendula officinalis) do share the same plant family of the Asteraceae.
Calendula is very easy to grow in your garden when started by seeds after danger of frost. You can usually find Calendula plants at your local nursery, as well.
You can easily save seed from the spent flower tops to plant again next year. But they often self seed, which is a bonus!
