Pyrethrum Robinson's Rose Tanacetum Coccineum is a hardy perennial native to Asia. Pyrethrum Robinson's Rose seeds germinate quickly, and commonly known as Painted Daisy and Chrysanthemum Coccineum, this variety of Pyrethrum produces large, daisy-like pink-rose flowers on a top of bushy mounds of very attractive, evergreen, dark-green foliage with finely cut leaves. Perennial Painted Daisy blooms throughout spring and summer, and its showy flowers appear all summer long, attracting butterflies, hummingbirds, and bees.
Pyrethrum Robinson's Rose is a superb perennial for mass planting, mixed borders, and is a popular choice for cutting gardens.
