This particular strain has gained popularity among gardeners and culinary enthusiasts for its striking coloration and versatile use. It represents a beautiful blend of ornamental charm and practical utility, a testament to the evolving nature of plant breeding and cultivation.

Uses: Strawberry Blonde Calendula is not only a visual treat in gardens but also a culinary delight. The petals, known for their slightly peppery taste, are a wonderful addition to salads, garnishes, and as a coloring agent in various dishes. In addition to their culinary uses, these flowers are renowned for their medicinal properties, particularly in skin care, where they are used in creams and oils for their soothing effects.

Growing Habits & Planting Instructions: For successful growth, sow Strawberry Blonde Calendula seeds in well-draining, fertile soil, ideally in an area that receives full sun. The planting depth should be about 1/4 inch, with seedlings spaced approximately 8-12 inches apart. These plants prefer a bushy, compact growth habit and will thrive with regular watering and occasional feeding. To encourage continued blooming, deadheading the spent flowers is recommended. As they grow, these calendulas will not only enhance your garden's beauty but also attract beneficial pollinators, adding to the health and vibrancy of your garden ecosystem.
