Are you looking for a lovely plant that is both useful and attractive? An excellent option is Calendula. They have a lanceolate shape and grow alternately along the stem, with slightly wavy or toothed margins. Throughout late spring, summer, and fall, single and double-floret daisy-like flowers ranging from mild to brilliant yellow, orange, and pastel pink are borne on branching stems. Calendula is a flowering herbaceous plant with medicinal benefits that attract useful pollinators, repels garden pests, and is even edible. In most regions, it is considered an annual plant that produces a large number of spectacular blossoms after deadheading spent blooms. Moreover, with color combinations, Calendula can light up your garden and turn out to become a vibrant picture.
