Calendula species ?;

Ornamental for id from Punjab-2012: This ornamental was growing in a Gurudwara garden in Chamkaur Sahib, Punjab…shot in June 2012..the flowers were not fully open..the plant was nearly 1 feet high, leaves oblong-lanceolate, sessile, hispid….will really appreciate if id can be resolved….

Look like “Calendula officinalis (pot marigold)

Leaves and flowers (with generally unopened buds) of one of the species of Helichrysum i.e Helichrysum orientale have some similarities to this plant. Characters need be checked for any possible ID.

Seems to be Caledula. But the leaves are confusing me.

hope to get this time…I was unlucky in that flowers were not open, making identification difficult…
