Tanacetum coccineum 'Robinson's Red' (Painted Daisy)

Painted Daisy 'Robinson's Red', Pyrethrum 'Robinson's Red'


Adding striking colors to the garden in late spring to early summer, Tanacetum coccineum 'Robinson's Red' (Painted Daisy) is an herbaceous perennial boasting a profusion of very showy daisies, 2.5 in. wide (6 cm), with a large central golden disc, elegantly contrasting with a skirt of red rays. They last over a very long season to the delight of butterflies but also repel insects, helping to keep your garden pest free! They rise above a strongly-aromatic foliage mound of soft, finely-divided, fern-like dark green leaves which remains attractive after blooming is over. Finally, Painted Daisies have always been popular as cut flowers thanks to their sturdy, straight stems that prolong their blooms' life in a vase. Plant it in large groupings for plenty of cut flowers and for greatest impact in the landscape.

  • Grows up to 24-36 in. tall (60-90 cm) and 18-24 in. wide (45-60 cm)
  • Performs best in full sun in average, medium moisture, well-drained soils. Prefers sandy soil although it is worth trying in any well-drained soil. Avoid wet, heavy soils.
  • Painted Daisies are highly versatile and are ideal additions to beds and borders, containers, coastal gardens, cottage gardens.
  • Generally disease free. Keep an eye out for aphids, leaf and bud eelworms and leaf-mining flies. Famous for its insect repelling properties, Painted Daisies attract butterflies and are deer resistant.
  • Cut back plant stems after flowering to promote additional bloom.
  • Propagate by division in spring. Propagate by basal cuttings in spring.
