PAINTED DAISY SEEDS
Tanacetum coccineum syn. Pyrethrum coccineum
Painted daisies are bushy 2-3′ tall perennials which produce 2-3″ wide bright yellow-eyed daisies in late spring and early summer. When plants are cut back, they bloom again in late summer. Foliage is handsome, finely divided and vivid green. Flowers are excellent for cutting. Painted daisies dislike climates that are both hot and humid. Give plants full sun in mild summer areas, part shade where it is hot. Winter hardy to zone 3.
