The botanical name of Calendula is Calendula officinalis and is actually a short-lived perennial in warmer climates. However in cooler climate zones the plant is usually grown as an annual flower in garden beds and containers. Calendula is also commonly known as pot marigold, although is actually different from the common marigold (Tagetes spp.). Calendula plant is part of the Asteraceae family along with chrysanthemums and daisies, and it really has a daisy-like appearance. Calendula flowers are planted in spring after the last frost and they grow relatively quickly, flowering 6 to 8 weeks from seeding.
