Lady Godiva® Orange Calendula hybrid 'kercaldiva' USPPAF, Can PBRAF
  • I chose this plant for the color and because I had grown calendulas in the past with great success.
    'Lady Godiva' grows compact and with good color, but it must be deadheaded, and it was not as dense with blooms as expected.

    Satisfactory Average performance, met expectations but not outstanding.

  • Love the color of the flowers on this plant. The flowers are a bit smaller than I was hoping for but it has been producing a lot of them. The description says deadheading is not necessary but the spent flowers are persistent. I just trimmed off a good 20 or more and have been doing so at least once a week. There are still plenty of flowers and buds remaining. The plant has performed really well.

    Satisfactory Average performance, met expectations but not outstanding.

  • Could not resist the very unique yellow orange color of the flowers on this fella.
    Grows wider than I expected and has over a dozen blooms on it.
    The color is stunning the blooms last a while.
    Of note...the blooms close up at dusk and reopen during the day.

    Highly recommend as the color is vibrant and the plant is robust.

    Above Average Superior performance, among my favorites, would recommend to others.
