Who Can Resist a Daisy?
The Pyrethrum (Painted Daisy) with its cheery bright flowers in a mix of red, pink and white blooms in late spring will re-flower if cut back after first blooming. Finely-cut, ferny foliage grows in a pleasing mound. Easy to grow, striking when planted in mass and drought tolerant, the cut flowers last well in arrangements. a.k.a. Tanacetum coccineum.

Pyrethrum General Information

Pyrethrum are large daisies of white to pink to red freely produced in late spring to summer. Superb for long-lasting cut flowers. Finely-cut, mounding foliage is attractive even when not in bloom. Painted daisies are perfect in cottage gardens and mixed borders. Idaho has restricted all potted plant material from being shipped into Idaho at this time.

Pyrethrum Plant Care

Non invasive, trim plants back in spring. Cut back spent flower stems to promote reblooming. After blooming shear back to basal foliage. Pyrethrum may be divided every other year in spring or very early fall. Can be pinched in spring to promote bushiness. May appreciate afternoon shade in very hot regions. May need staking.

Plantable Pots

Our plants are grown in 3.5x3.5x4” plantable pots. Made from 100% biodegradable coconut husk fibers (coir), these pots have tremendous advantages over plastic pots. With better air exchange, this "breathable" pot fosters robust root growth and reduces transplant shock since you can plant the pots directly in the ground. The pot naturally becomes part of the soil on its own over time—no composting required—and since they're made from a renewable resource that requires very little energy, they're earth-friendly too!

100% Guarantee

We offer a 100% guarantee for all our perennials to reach you in good condition and to grow. If you're not satisfied, we'll reship or refund immediately. Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have questions or concerns—we share your passion for gardening and want your new plants to thrive in your border!
