Chrysanthemum carinatum | Also known as: Painted daisy, Chrysanthemum tricolor | Rating: 4 votes | Print / Pdf

Just like it says, looks like someone painted a daisy. Sweet.

The descriptive name of Painted Daisy is the perfect name for these delightful plants. There are various different cultivars available, but each have beautifully cheery flowers that blooms during the summer and autumn months. The leaves are also strangely aromatic, making for an additional reason to grow this wonderful plant. It enjoys a full sunlight position in the garden to best thrive, and make sure it’s sheltered from driving rain and wind. It might also need protection from the harshest of the winter frosts. A popular plant in cut flower arrangements.
