Grow a garden filled with Creeping Daisy, from freshly harvested Chrysanthemum paludosum flower seeds. Creeping Daisy is a low growing plant that matures to height of only 6 to 12 inches tall. They produce beautiful, white petaled flowers, which are accented with a golden-yellow center. The flowers span roughly 1 to 1.5 inches in diameter & can be dead headed to prolong blooming. Butterflies, bumblebees & honeybees will all cling to these delightful little flowers.
Categorized as an annual flowering plant, Creeping Daisy will establish itself from seeds. The plants grow quickly, bloom profusely through the summer months and will later die with the first killing frost. Creeping Daisy plants are known to readily self seed at the end of the season, allowing new plant life to grow the following Spring season. You can also collect the seeds yourself to save for the next growing season as well.
Because of it's short growth habit, Creeping Daisy is used in many gardens as a groundcover. They can be grown around stepping stones & Pavers, in pots & containers, along borders, in flower beds & more. The uses for Creeping Daisy are endless. They can also be grown with a other low growing flowers & daisies as well, such as English Daisy.

Sowing The Seed
Creeping Daisy is easily established directly outdoors, but can be started indoors for transplanting later in the Spring season. If started indoors, sow in peat pots, 6 to 8 weeks prior to the last frost. Since the seeds will require direct light to properly germinate, it is imperative that you do not cover the seeds with topsoil. When the weather is warm and all danger of frost has passed, either direct sow outdoors or transplant entire peat pots into the garden.
Creeping Daisy will thrive in an area that receives full sunlight for the majority of the day. They prefer temperatures that exceed 70F and are very adaptive to various sowing mediums. They do however prefer a soil that is well drained. To increase drainage, we recommend adding a light compost to areas containing hard, compact soil. The seeds should be lightly watered each day, with a mist setting or spray bottle, until germination has occurred. You can water less frequently once the plants are fully matured, since they are somewhat drought tolerant.
Germination & Growth
Your Creeping Daisy seeds will begin to show signs of life within as little as 7 to 10 days, but can take up to 2 weeks to germinate. The plants themselves will reach a mature height of 6 to 12 inches tall, producing pure white petaled blooms, which are accented with a golden-yellow center. The plants can be spaced 8 to 12 inches apart from one another. Creeping Daisy is often used as a groundcover and goes great in flower beds, borders, pots & containers or in a naturalized setting. They will also attract an array of beneficial insects to the garden, such as butterflies, bumblebees, honeybees, hummingbirds & ladybugs as well.
