Chrysanthemum Seeds

Chrysanthemum carinatum, also known as painted daisy or tricolor daisy, is a species of flowering plant in the Asteraceae family. It is native to Europe and Asia and is commonly grown as an ornamental plant in gardens and as a cut flower.

Painted daisies are characterized by their colorful, daisy-like flowers, which have a yellow center and petals in shades of red, pink, purple, or white. They are typically grown as annuals, as they do not tolerate frost well.

In the garden, painted daisies are often used in borders, mass plantings, and as cut flowers. They prefer full sun and well-drained soil and can tolerate a range of soil types. The plants are also relatively easy to grow and require minimal care.

Painted daisies can also be used as companion plants to other vegetables and flowers. They are known to attract beneficial insects such as bees, butterflies, and hoverflies, which can help pollinate nearby plants and control pests. Some plants that are commonly grown as companion plants to painted daisies include basil, marigolds, and zinnias.

Overall, painted daisies are a colorful and attractive addition to the garden, with potential benefits as a companion plant and cut flower.
