Chrysanthemum carinatum 'Polar Star' is an easy to grow showy annual with unusual tricolour daisy flowers. Each white bloom has an intriguing inner yellow halo surrounding a central darker cushion. Perfect for adding height and interest to borders, as well as making a long lasting cut flower. Height: 75cm (30"). Spread: 40cm (16").
Companion planting: Try growing Chrysanthemums with chives, whose aromatic leaves will deter aphids.
Direct sow Painted Daisy seeds outdoors where they are to grow from April to May. Choose a position in full sun on any well drained soil which has been raked to a fine tilth. Sow seeds thinly, at a depth of 6mm (&frac;1/4") in drills spaced 23cm (9") apart. Water the ground regularly, especially during dry periods. When Chrysanthemum plants are large enough to handle, thin them out to 30cm (12") apart.
