This ornamental was shot from Command Hospital, Panchkula on March 08, 2012. I think this should be a Calendula sp. Hope to find the id…..

This is Calendula officinalis L.

Calendula officinalis.

yes, common in the northeast gardens

I was wondering if this can be a different species of Calendula, the shape of leaves, number of ray florets and densely hairy foliage prompted me to question the species…anyway thanks a lot..

I find it difficult to accept it as Calendula officinalis: involucre bracts are very different, ray florets scarcely toothed and leaves much smaller and much more hairy.

This is again put for your consideration..

Reply from another thread:
“I don’t think this to be Calendula”

Due to a recent interaction, the id for this ornamental is nearly final…
Please give your views if this can be Arctotis hirsuta

it certainly is hairy. that’s what had raised a bell that it was not a calendula
