We are serious calendula (Calendula officinalis) growers, growing them nearly every season of the year on our farm since 2009. In recent years we've had the luxury of making selections from the bounty of landraces that now exist on our farmland. Lemon Sorbet is a selection from the remnants of an insectary blend that we sowed around the rabbit fence of our circle garden. I was struck by one barely irrigated plant that was nevertheless flowering with light pastel yellow blossoms. I stuck a couple of seed heads in my pocket and went about working up a larger population of plants and began selecting for the same variegated pastel shades.
70 days to bloom. Hardy re-seeding annual. Seeds are certified organic.
