Calandula Coffee And Cream.

Calandula Coffee And Cream. (Marigold.)

This plant has gone all through winter in bud.
Due to the warm weather the flower buds were coaxed open early, to show off the gorgeous petals edged in a dark brown pencil line.

Thank you Thrupennybit, some times I think marigolds can be underrated by some, but I think they are great.

I used to plant pot marigolds (calendula) in the greenhouse beneath tomato plants to keep white fly away.
Hadn't seen this one before though.

I do to, HB, calendulas are much under rated I think.
