Painted Daisy: Direct Sow Perennial

How to Sow and Plant

Sowing Directly in the Garden:

  • Direct sow after all danger of frost in full sun in rich, well-drained soil.
  • Remove weeds and work organic matter into the top 6-8 inches of soil; then level and smooth.
  • Sow seeds evenly and cover with 1/8 inches of fine soil.
  • Firm the soil lightly and keep it evenly moist.
  • Seedlings will emerge in 10-21 days.

How to Grow

  • Keep weeds under control during the growing season. Weeds compete with plants for water, space and nutrients, so control them by either cultivating often or use a mulch to prevent their germination.
  • Mulches also help retain soil moisture and maintain even soil temperatures. For perennials, an organic mulch of aged bark or shredded leaves lends a natural look to the bed and will improve the soil as it breaks down in time.  Always keep mulches off a plant’s stems to prevent possible rot.
  • Water thoroughly at least once a week to help new roots grow down deeply. Soil should be damp at about 1 inch below the soil surface. You can check this by sticking your finger in the soil. Water early in the morning to give all leaves enough time to dry.  One inch of rain or watering per week is recommended for most perennial plants. You can check to see if you need to add water by using a rain gauge.
  •  Deadhead spent flower heads to encourage continuous flowering and prevent seed development.
  • Remove and discard foliage after a hard frost in fall.
  • In colder regions, apply another layer of mulch (1-2 inches) after the ground freezes in fall. Evergreen boughs (from Christmas trees) provide additional protection. Remove this mulch in the spring.
  • Divide when plants become overcrowded, bloom size begins to diminish or plants lose their vigor.

Growing Tips

  • To divide: divide in spring, just as they begin to grow. Dig clumps from the ground and with a sharp knife or spade, cut into good sized divisions, each with several growing eyes and plenty of roots. Remove any dead or unhealthy plant parts and cut back stems. Replant one division where the plant was originally and plant the extra divisions elsewhere in your garden or give them away to gardening friends. Plant the divisions immediately, or as soon as possible, and water well.
  • Painted daisies may also be propagated from cuttings taken in spring.
  • Painted daisies make great long lasting, fragrant cut flowers.

Painted Daisy, Mixed Colors is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Needs to be started indoors Started seeds indoors because this Winter and Spring were unusually frigid. Very few sprouted. Glad to have a couple, though. Can't wait to see how they grow in my perennial garden.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointment I purchased a couple seed packets of this Painted Daisy and planted them this spring. I was VERY disappointed when NONE of them came up. Fortunately, I had success with the annual seeds I planted and was able to spread the plants out more to keep from having a bare spot in the flower garden.
