The Calendula includes 12-20 species of annual plants in the daisy family that are native from Macaronesia east through the Mediterranean region to Iran. It can also be referred to as the "marigold".
Calendula means the first day of the month, referring to the fact that the marigold blooms at the beginning of the month throughout most months of the year.
The Calendula normally has layered petals that are oval in shape and can grow to be 3-7cm across. The colors range through various shades of yellow and orange.
Whilst Calendula or marigold are available as cut flowers they may not always be available from your local professional florist, however mini gerbera would make a fantastic substitute that could look very similar.
