Deep orange petals are backed by red to mahogany undersides on this heritage cultivar that gained favor during the 1930s. Petals are edible and can also be used as to create a dye. Plant this calendula in full sun and in moderately rich, moist soils during cool spring weather. If summers are cool, like they can be, it will continue to flower all summer long. In more normal summers, it will stop flowering with the onset of hot weather and then, if deadheaded, begin to flower again when cool weather returns in the fall.
