Planting Instructions for Tanacetum coccineum (painted daisy):

Bloom Time:  Early summer Light:  Full sun to part sun
Soil:  Average, well-drained Moisture:  Average to dry, drought tolerant
Planting Depth:  Top of crown/base of foliage 1/2 to 1" below soil Spacing:  15 to 18"

Upon arrival:  Unpack box and check that you have everything on your packing list. Painted daisies like to be dry when dormant so make sure there isn't any condensation inside the bag, otherwise just keep it sealed and plant everything within a few days.

Soil/Location:  Plant painted daisies in the mixed perennial or cottage garden in a sunny, hot and fairly dry location. They have a tendency to seed about and naturalize so they do best with other vigorous perennials.

Moisture:  Painted daisies prefer to be on the dry side and they are very drought tolerant once established. Water once after planting and then they almost never need supplemental watering.

Spacing: 15 to 18" apart

Depth:  Plant painted daisies with the crown slightly buried, about 1/2 to 1" below soil level. None of the roots should be showing after planting.

General Instructions:  Amend your garden with compost or peat humus to loosen the soil, if needed, but they will grow in any well-draining soil. Mix a couple teaspoons of garden food or bone meal into the planting hole and plant at the depth listed above. After planting you can water in once, lightly, and then they shouldn't need to be watered again.

Landscape Uses:  Combine early flowering painted daisies with poppies, peonies, Iris, and lupines. They work great in the cottage garden and will naturalize among other vigorous perennial such as Echinacea, sedum, and daylilies.
