A member of the daisy family, calendula delights our senses with an intense orange color reminiscent of marigolds. In fact, a calendula nickname is pot marigold. Its chrysanthemum-like array of petals fan out from the center in layers and create an airy look suspended about the medium green foliage. Lady Godiva Orange English Marigold blossoms blanket the foliage so completely, you will have a hard time seeing the greenery.

Native to Western Europe, the Mediterranean and Southwest Asia, Zones 7a through 11b, this heat tolerant annual will flourish in the milder climates as an early spring flower, after all danger of freeze is passed in Zones 3-6. It can handle a light frost, but quickly declines when temperatures reach 32 degrees and lower. Lady Godiva Orange is an improved hybrid that has more heat tolerance than its ancestors, giving southern regions of the country the benefit of its three season beauty.

Lady Godiva Orange English Marigold Care

This continuous blooming annual is easy to maintain. Full sun to part shade is preferred, with light shade appreciated in hot climates. Good draining soil, with an average pH of 5.8 to 6.2, kept moderately moist will reward you with copious blossoms and healthy green foliage. A water soluble fertilizer once or twice in the season for in ground plants, and a regular fertilization schedule for hanging baskets, window boxes and containers, will give you flowers from spring to fall.

Deadheading is not necessary as this plant remains tidy throughout the season. Prune lightly to encourage branching and renewed vigor if the heat of the summer in hot climates slows it down. This annual makes great cut flowers for your arrangements, and retains its color as a dried flower, increasing the seasonal uses for your beyond-the-garden needs.

Lady Godiva Orange English Marigold Spacing

Growing 10 to 16 inches tall, and spreading out 12 to 18 inches wide, give calendula 8 to 12 inches of space between plantings to give it the air circulation it needs to prevent powdery mildew or other fungal diseases. Pair this continuous rebloomer with its companion calendula Lady Godiva Yellow, or SuperTunia Honey for a nice complimentary combination. Create a more earthy display with some bush cherry tomatoes and basil.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
