Glowing as if to hint at the power within each radiant bloom, calendula has healed, soothed and held pestilence at bay for hundreds of years. "Orange King" is an old-fashioned variety from the early 1920s with bright orange edible petals. Snap off the faded flowers for continued bloom, or cut often, for it is useful and beautiful. Easy to save seed!
