An unusual mixture containing the usual bright orange but with various unusual shades of yellows, cream and apricot with chocolate coloured centres.
Calendula Art Shades Mixed (also known as English or Pot Marigold) reach a height of 45cm and the large frilled flowers will add great interest to a vase of flowers.
