Calendula

Calendula officinalis, or Pot Marigold, is a well-known versatile herb and domestic remedy, and rampant in the garden! You will see the flowers tightly closed at dusk and in the damp, but otherwise as a vibrant bedspread of gold and orange.

Both the leaves and the petals are edible, with a mildly peppery taste. "Poor Man’s Saffron" will tint your food, and allegedly your hair!, a golden yellow.

Calendula is the main ingredient in many external skin treatments, for bites, stings, sprains, warts, varicose veins and diaper rash. Not all marigolds are edible.
