Pyrethrum Robinson's Mix Tanacetum Coccineum is an extremely showy and cheerful-looking perennial. Pyrethrum Robinson's Mix seeds are easy to germinate without any special treatment, and also known as Chrysanthemum Coccineum, Pyrethrum Coccineum and Perennial Painted Daisy, Tanacetum Coccineum is a bushy, vigorous 16-18 inch plant that blooms with daisy-like, pink, rose, and red flowers with a large central gold disc in the center. Pyrethrum has evergreen, finely-divided foliage that makes a lovely foundation for the fragrant blooms that attract butterflies and hummingbirds. 

Pyrethrum Robinson's Mix is a perfect perennial for mass planting, borders, containers, cutting gardens, and rock gardens. Tanacetum Coccineum seeds have to be kept moist until germination, and once germinated Perennial Painted Daisy grows vigorously, producing eye-catching blooms on strong stems that just seem made for cutting. Pyrethrum is an all time favorite cut flower.
