More than just good looks, this annual and perennial mix is completely edible! In bright colors of orange, blue, yellow, and pink, you'll not only enjoy their color all season, but also the many ways you can use them. Savor the range of flavors, from peppery calendula and arugula, to clove-like bachelor's button, and the light onion flavor of chives. Add to salads, soups, and cooked dishes, and make herb butter, vinegars, and flavored drinks. The culinary possibilities are endless!
