🌱 How to Grow

Sow chrysanthemum seeds indoors before last frost: transplant outdoors when temperatures warm up. Press seeds into the soil and lightly cover. Keep seeds moist until germination occurs. For warmer climates with a long growing season, you can directly sow seed outdoors after danger of frost has passed. Sow seeds into prepared beds. Chrysanthemum is not fussy about soil type, and can thrive in poor or average conditions. Do not over-water: this is the most common cause for early failure. Allow soil to become almost dry in between waterings.

  • Environment: full sun
  • Soil: well-drained w' pH 5.8-6.8
  • Sowing rate: 2 seeds per plant

Mixed Color Pyrethrum Seeds

🌼 Chrysantheum Coccineum flower seed, also known as Painted Daisy, produces 2 - 3 inch daisy-like flowers in red, pink, lilac and white with a yellow center in late spring to early summer. The foliage has fern-like divided leaves with a strong scent and is attractive even when the blooms are gone. Chrysanthemum Coccineum plants prefer a fertile, well-drained soil and full sun in the North or partial shade in the South.

🌼 Best in full sun, this perennial Chrysanthemum is not fussy about soil type, and Painted Daisy Robinson Mix can thrive in poor or average conditions, but prefers acidic or neutral soil to alkaline. Deer leave it alone, making it a good choice for an open meadow as well as the sunny border.

🌼 Sow Chrysanthemum seeds indoors before last frost to be transplanted outdoors when temperatures warm up. Press the flower seeds into the soil and lightly cover. Keep the Painted Daisy seeds moist until germination occurs. For warm climates with a long growing season, after danger of frost has passed, directly sow the flower seeds into prepared beds. Cut the stems down low after Painted Daisy flowers are done blooming to encourage and second bloom later in the summer.

🌸 Chrysanthemum Robinson's Mix attracts bees, butterflies and birds to the garden and makes a great cut flower as well. There are some names for Painted Daisy that are synonymous and can be confusing. Tanacetum coccineum and Pyrethrum coccineum can both be used in addition to Chrysanthemum coccineum.

How Much Seed Do I Need?

How to Calculate Square Footage And Purchase the Right Amount of Wildflower Seed In 3 Easy Steps

Before purchasing wildflower seeds to plant your meadow, calculate the square footage of your meadow or garden bed. This guide will walk you through the 3 easy steps, so that you'll know how much seed you need!

1. Measure

For Squares or Rectangles: measure the length and width of the space where you want to plant. 

For Circles: find the radius by measuring the widest part of your planting space and divide by 2.

2. Calculate Square Footage

For Squares or Rectangles:  length (in feet)  x  width (in feet) = square feet

For example, a garden that measures 50 feet x 30 feet = 1500 sq. ft.

 

For Circles:  3.14  x radius (in feet) x  radius   = square feet

For example, a circular garden that is 20 feet across has a radius of 10 feet. 10 x 10 x 3.14 = 314 sq. ft.

(The mathematical formula for the area of a circle is Π · r2 - the Π symbol is pronounced Pi and represents approximately 3.142, and r2 stands for radius squared.)

3. Find How Much Seed You Need

The amount of seed you should plant depends on the flower display you want. We typically recommend planting on the higher side for a lush meadow. Plant on the lower side for a more scattered look. 

For Individual Species: The recommended rates vary greatly from species to species. Check the product page, or contact us with questions.

For Wildflower Mixes: Reference the table below.

This Much Seed Covers... This Much Square Footage
1/4 lb 250 - 500 sq. ft.
1/2 lb 500 - 1,000 sq. ft.
1 lb 1,000 - 2,000 sq. ft.
5 lbs 5,000 - 10,000 sq. ft.
10 lbs 10,000 - 25,000 sq. ft.
Acreage
  • 1 Acre = 43,000 sq.ft.
  • 1/2 Acre = 21,500 sq. ft.
  • 1/4 Acre = 10,750 sq.ft.
  • 1/10 Acre = 4,300 sq. ft.

Tips For Larger Plantings: If you have a large site, from 1/2 acre to several acres, your planting rate may be affected by land conditions. If you have heavy weeds on the site now, some erosion, generally poor soil, or other land problems, additional seed is usually the most economical solution, since installation of a large planting usually costs more than the seed itself. If your site does have these problems and you want full coverage, use 1 pound per 1000 sq. ft.
