Chrysanthemum Coccineum: Robinson's Red is an easy perennial to grow from flower seed, and it performs stunningly in the garden with its pure red to magenta colored blooms. It makes a great cut flower too! The flowers are set above the fern-like foliage on very sturdy, straight stems that prolong the blooms' life in the vase and also serve as a solid foundation for the butterflies and bees visit. The blooms measure about 2 1/2 inches wide, and they last for more than a week. Expect them to begin opening in late spring and to continue very freely into summer. It is not fussy about soil type, and it can thrive in poor or average conditions. Deer leave it alone, making it a good choice for an open meadow as well as the sunny border. Sow Chrysanthemum seeds indoors before last frost to be transplanted outdoors when temperatures warm up. For warm climates with a long growing season, after danger of frost has passed, directly sow the flower seeds into prepared beds. Cut the stems down low after Painted Daisy flowers are done blooming to encourage and second bloom later in the summer. Perennial Sun Height: 18" Zones: 3-7
