Finnish Calendula

The seeds that form this variety were originally gathered during a Finnish autumn, first from the botanical garden in Helsinki and then from the community garden plots in the Pispala neighborhood of Tampere, which are filled with lush black soil formed in relationship to the nearby lake, PyhÌ_jÌ_rvi. The color composition of these blossoms perfectly reflects what I have come to love about being there: an understated beauty that only deepens with the passage of time. The blossoms have the quotidian yellows and oranges that we have come to expect from a calendula, but there are also a number of light, variegated pastel shades, including wonderful, multi-hued peach blossoms. -Quin
