About the calendula flower:
Our Calendula Fairy loves to be punctual. It is very important for her to have her blooming events properly scheduled!
Did you know that Calendula got its name due to its blooming at the beginning of each month? The Latin “calends”, that brought the word “calendar” in English, is the root of Calendula’s name, which means “throughout the months.”
Calendula, also known as Pot Marigold, is native to Europe, where it blooms well over a very long season, from June until the first frost.
Its bright yellow or orange flowers have many uses. Its florets are edible, used to add color to salads and rice, while Calendula extracts have well-known healing properties.
