calendula1This gorgeous flower is easy to grow, has beautiful flowers ranging in colors from red-orange to yellow, and –best of all– has great healing properties for all kinds of skin ailments.  You probably wonder at the different names.  We call it Calendula.  Old herbal manuscripts and some new ones still refer to it as Marigold or Pot Marigold.  What we call marigold is an entirely different plant so if you want to grow and use this flower, calendula is what you want.  You may be able to buy plants at a garden center or it is easily grown from seed.
