A fun little find from the greenhouse, a population of calendula that can’t decide what color it is. Individual flowers may be half orange/half peach, a mixture of different petal colors together, or have petals that change color from the base to the tip. Pastel to bright shades of yellow and orange, with only occasional red flashbacks.
