About calendula snow princess

Calendula (Calendula officinalis) is a short-lived perennial in warmer climates, but is normally grown for it's ease as an annual flower in garden beds and pots. Also known as pot marigold, Calendula is different from the common marigold. It is part of the Asteraceae family, along with daisies and chrysanthemums hence it's daisy-like appearance. Planted out in spring after the last frost it grows quickly and can be known to flower in as little as 6 weeks from seedling.

The origins of 'pot marigold' came from the gold flowers that bloomed during the festivals of the Virgin Mary in Renaissance times (mary + gold = marigold). Traditionally, people often used the flowers in cooking although now more known for adding a bit of colour to the garden beds.
