Painted Daisy consists of several color combinations, including red, white, pink, yellow & purple. Each flower is made up of about 20 petals measuring 1 to 1.5 inches in length. Each petal has a single base color, which is accented with a second, and sometimes third color, creating a two toned ring near the center of the flower. Painted Daisy flowers range in height from 18 to 36 inches tall. the foliage, leaves and stems are slender and green.
Painted Daisy is categorized as an annual flowering plant. They grow quickly from freshly harvested Chrysanthemum seeds, bloom profusely through the summer months and later die with the first killing frost. They are known to attract an array of beneficial insects to the garden, such as butterflies, bumblebees, hummingbirds & honeybees as well. Although they are grown as annuals, and will inevitably die with the harsh temperatures of winter, the seeds can still be collected, to regrow the following season.
Painted Daisy are appealing when sown in thick masses, due to their upright behavior and slender foliage. They are becoming more popularly used in landscaping and look great in flower beds, along borders & fences, or in pots & containers as well. These gorgeous flowers also make a lovely cut flower for floral arrangements & vases as well.

Sowing The Seed
Painted Daisy seeds are best established outdoors in masses, when the weather is warm and all danger of frost has passed. Begin by clearing your sowing area of all unwanted plant life, removing all weeds as well. Scatter the seeds to the surface of the soil, covering thinly with 1/16" of topsoil. Do not bury the seeds any further than the recommended depth, as they will require direct light to germinate properly.
Painted Daisy plants thrive in an area of full sunlight, with temperatures of at least 68F or more. The soil should be rich & fertile, while also being well drained as well. To increase your drainage, we reccomend adding a light compost to any areas that consist of hard, compact soil. water the seeds daily with a mist setting to provide ample moisture, without disrupting the seeds, or washing them away.
Germination & Growth
Germination of your Painted Daisy seeds will occur within 7 to 10 days after sowing. The plants reach a mature height of roughly 12 to 36 inches tall, and can be spaced out accordingly. Remember the plants look best when sown by the masses, so try not to space them more than 8 to 12 inches apart from one another. Each plant will produce multicolored blooms, attracting an array of beneficial insects to the garden, such as butterflies, bumblebees & honeybees.
