Pot Marigolds Are a Fast Growing Herb Plant
Pot marigolds' blooms last up to eight weeks in the summer and are a quick-to-grow plant.

Pot marigold (Calendula officinalis) loves sun and moist soil. This cool-season plant grows 1 to 2 feet tall in spring through fall; deadheading helps promote more blooms. Pot marigold's bright, orange and yellow petals are edible and can be tossed into salads, desserts and even dried for brewing tea.*
