HOW TO GROW

Sowing: Direct sow creeping daisy seeds in spring after the last chance of frost, sowing on the surface of the soil; press the soil down lightly and keep moderately moist until germination, which should take place within 10-14 days. To start Chrysanthemum paludosum indoors, sow on the surface of a flat 6-8 weeks before the last frost of spring. Keep the soil lightly moist and at a temperature of 70 degrees F until germination. Transplant or thin the seedlings as soon as they reach a height of several inches.

Growing: Water seedlings regularly until they become established; mature plants also appreciate occasional watering, but too much moisture will cause disease and root rot. These daisies will bloom about 3 months after being planted from seed. To encourage branching and bushy growth, pinch off the growing tips; deadheading helps increase blooming. If blooming decreases midseason, cut the plant back by half for new growth. This plant will self-seed and spread slowly by rhizomes; mature plants can also be divided in the fall or early spring. Cut the plants down to 2" above the ground after the first frost. Chrysanthemum paludosum makes an excellent choice for rock gardens, containers, window boxes, or ground cover. These plants attract butterflies and resist deer.

Harvesting: Daisies make long lasting fresh flowers; cut the stems long and place them in water immediately.

Seed Saving: Late in the season, allow the blossoms to fully mature; when the centers turn brown, cut them off and spread them out to dry away from direct sunlight. After about two weeks or when the heads have fully dried, rub them lightly to separate the seed from the husks. Store the creeping daisy seed in a cool, dry place.

love my creeping daisies

I have been ordering creeping daisy from Everwilde for at least 5 years (I think much more) and Everwilde is the best for quality and price. Since starting to use the Everwilde's creeping daisies iIhave lived in 3 different states, middle of California, southern Idaho and now southern Arizona and I have used the seeds in all 3 places. They have done well in all 3 but I believe the best is in hotter than hell Tucson, Az. They were started in fall and are absolutely gorgeous here in March. Now I know they will dry up and go to seed in our summers but they sustained a hard frost here (yes we have them) and out of all my plants sustained the least damage. So iI will be back next year for my 1/4 lb of seed to add to the plants that went to seed on their own. Thank you Everwilde for having such a great product and being a great company.

i have been using everwilde farms for many years, close to 10 i think. the only place i have been able to get creeping daisy. i have planted them in visalia, ca, caldwell, id and now tucson, az. while they have all had different bloom times (and don't last in hot, hot weather) they hve done well in the 3 different climates. shockingly to me they have done the best in tucson surviving our "winters" and did fine when other things frosted. i am convinced that the quality of the seeds are at least part of the reason they do so wonderful. they ship them fast and i can get a good price for bulk seeds. p.s. these flowers reseed themselves if left to dry and between that and new seeds they come up everywhere......or you can also control them.

DESCRIPTION

IN-STOCK ORDERS SHIP THE NEXT BUSINESS DAY VIA THE US POST OFFICE.

These sweet little daisies are a perfect choice for rock gardens, containers, window boxes, or as a ground cover. The low-growing plant is an annual but reseeds itself to produce plants the following year.
Creeping daisy seeds bloom into low-growing flowers that have been cultivated in the Mediterranean region for centuries. In 1753 the famous botanist Carl Linnaeus gave this flower its genus name, derived from Greek words meaning "golden flower." The poet Chaucer was the first to give Chrysanthemum paludosum the common name "day's eye," because of their habit of opening in the morning and closing at night. A common saying of the era stated, "When you can put your foot on seven daisies, summer is come." In the language of flowers, daisies symbolize innocence, simplicity, and modesty.
