Daisy, Red Painted
Tanacetum coccineum (Pyrethrum) 'Robinson's Red'
||3 - 8
One of nature's most valuable plants. The Painted Red Daisy canít be beaten for cutting, with elegant, frond-type foliage that shows off the brilliant blooms in June and July. Cuttings last three to four times longer than roses, for example. Pyrethrum extract is used to make organic insecticides with almost instant knock-down. Since most insects can't tolerate flowering pyrethrum, it helps to keep your garden pest free. Doubly remarkable is that the Painted Red Daisy only affects harmful insects, not other plant or animal life! Try some. See for yourself. You'll wonder why no one told you about this before! Blooms: summer. Deer resistant.
