Compact tufts of fine-cut foliage, from which flower stalks rise in May. Good cutflowers. Deadhead/cut back to promote rebloom. The 'James Kelway' cultivar is sometimes described as having scarlet flowers. Ours is more a magenta, but we like it anyway.

|Tournesole Mio||Jul 21, 2006||Is there any posibility to get some samples or at least some picture of seed grain to Tanaceum coccineum sve. Chrysanthemum cinerariifolium spp.
As we are working on construction of "Seed grain bombs" and Jiffy-pot mediated projectiles able to be ejected by transformed odd war material we hope.|
I've no idea what you're talking about, but it sounds like it might be fun.
|carol||Jun 28, 2008||i have had remarkable results with this painted dasiey considering i live in northern canada in zone 2 . a very hardy perannual indeed ...i bought the plant for a poultry amount at the end of season and popped it into the flower bed before octobers frost ...the last week of june in magnificent bloom ...and it has reseeded itself so i'm plucking the babys and rolacating them with out a word of grumble from them ...took to their new location like a duck to water .|
|Luz A.||Jun 05, 2010||I bought this plant three years ago in one of the garden centers in our locality. It looks very similar (pictured above) with a dark pink (almost maroon color and yellow center) Lots of people love it and one lady stopped her car to ask for a plant specimen, however are there any kind of color like yellow or violet?|
Luz, I'm afraid I don't understand just what you're asking. There are different color variations, but all that I'm aware of are within the same general color family: red/pink/lavender ray flowers with yellow center.
|Carole||Jul 08, 2011||Just as they bloom, mine fall over. Is there something I can do to prevent that?|
I guess you could stake them, but that's a hassle. According to "The Well-Tended Perennial Garden", pinching plants when they are about six inches tall can produce sturdier growth. If they are not currently planted in full sun, I would recommend moving them to a sunnier location.
|Bob Romeo, Mi.||Apr 28, 2014||Painted daisy fall over: Use potatoe fertilizer - a low nitrogen level number (5-24-24 or similar 4-20-20) two tablespoons in a 6 inch diameter from outside edge of active growing plant. it does not need a high nitrogen number. Also a great thing to do on Oriental Lilies on top of the acidic mulch after first inch of growth shows. This produces more flowers/buds with larger flowers on very sturdy stems and stops the bending and or falling over of stems. The necessary nitrogen will be given when thunder storms with lightnening pass by. Lightnening will release the necessary nitrogen from the air for healthy, but not weak stems.|
