Calendula Ivory Princess
Calendula 'Ivory Princess'
A favorite new variety, ‘Ivory Princess’ is a tall show stopper with giant flowers. Petals are a mix of creamy buff-yellow, the color of baby duckling down. The tips of the buttercream petals are serrated and have the tiniest outline of brown, giving a ruffled, lacy effect which beautifully compliments the dark brown eye. This unreal beauty is great for bouquets and wedding work. A must grow!
