Pot Marigold or Orange Calendula. This plant is native to southern Europe, flowering orange to 18 inches tall.  Traditionally used as an antiseptic,  promoting healing and inhibiting inflammation. Great in skin creams! The flowers, when boiled, yield a bright yellow-orange dye and are edible. I love to put the petals on top of salads for a visual delight.

More info: Calendula, scientifically known as Calendula officinalis and commonly called pot marigold, is a species from the Asteraceae family, originating from Mediterranean countries. Widely recognized for its vibrant orange-yellow flowers, Calendula has been used for medicinal purposes since at least the 12th century. The plant is an annual, thriving in almost any soil type and is easy to grow in sunny locations. Its flowering season extends from early spring until frost, making it a favored choice for gardeners seeking continuous blooms. The flower heads of Calendula are 3-7 cm across, and most cultivars are known for their spicy aroma. Deadheading, or removing dying flower heads, is recommended to maintain consistent blooming.

In the realm of herbal medicine and traditional remedies, Calendula is highly valued. Its flower petals contain flavonoids, which are plant-based antioxidants that help protect cells against damage by free radicals. Calendula is renowned for its anti-inflammatory, antiviral, and antibacterial properties. It has been traditionally used to treat various skin conditions, including burns, cuts, bruises, and dermatitis. Calendula creams and ointments are applied topically to promote wound healing, stimulate the growth of new tissue, and improve skin hydration and firmness.
