Also known as marigolds, the calendula is associated with the sun. The blossoms follow the sun and are sometimes called "husbandmanís dial". Another edible flower, the "Pot Marigold" was nicknamed not because they are grown in pots, but because the yellow flowers would be added to the cook pot to add color, nutrition, and thicken soups. Marigolds are also considered a medicinal herb.
Helpful in the garden as well as showing a burst of bright yellow color, the calendulaís roots emit a chemical that kills nematodes, making them beneficial to the gardener.
