Details

One of the most cheerful and easy to grow of our annual seed mixtures, Rainbow Mixed is ideal for filling gaps in borders, flowering quickly from seed, usually in only 12 weeks or less from sowing. The bright, bold single blooms are attractive to butterflies, bees and other beneficial insects. With their long, strong stems, they also make very good cut flowers. It is likely this species originated in Morocco.
Chrysanthemum carinatum is a hardy annual, which flowers the same year as sowing. It does well in virtually all well-drained soils in full sun. Not to be confused with perennial, autumn-flowering ‘chrysanthemums’ which are derived from Dendranthema x grandiflorum, a complex hybrid group.

Planting & Harvesting

Sow & Grow

Sow outdoors, March to May, 0.5cm (¼") deep directly into finely prepared soil which has been already watered. Water well until plants are established. Thin seedlings as required to allow development. Sowings made in curves rather than straight lines often create a more pleasing effect. Flowers: July to October.

Hint's & Tips

Remove dead heads to prolong the flowering season.
