A new basic number x=11 for the genus Calendula is reported for the first time in C. persica 2n=44 from Jammu. Its chromosome relationship with C. suffruticosa 2n=28,C. officinalis 2n=32 and C. arvensis 2n=32 are discussed. As in Narcissus the tetraploidy in Calendula provides the best form suitable for cultivation as garden plant.
