Painted Daisy for ABC Wednesday

Painted Daisy
Tanacetum coccineum 'Robinson's Mix'
(TAN-uh-SEE-tum) (kok-SIN-ee-um)
Synonyms: Pyrethrum roseum, Chrysanthemum coccineum

If you are here for Wordless Wednesday please scroll down to the next post. That is a ‘T’ also. Trollius chinensisGolden Queen’ or Golden Globe Flower.

The Painted Daisy is an old fashioned and fun plant to have in the garden. It is perennial and hardy. The flowers grow to about 18 inches and the finely cut foliage is an added attraction. I deadhead the spent flowers and have divided them in both the spring and fall. Pretty much a carefree plant that will grow in a wide range of soil conditions and full sun to partial shade.
