A Classic Cut Flower
Deep crimson single flowers grace this Pyrethrum. Cheery bright flowers that are freely produced in late spring to summer, should re-flower if cut back after first blooming. Finely-cut, somewhat ferny foliage grows in a pleasing mound. Easy to grow, striking when planted in masses and drought tolerant. 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.
