Chrysanthemum carinatum Painted Daisy is a species of flowering plant in the family Asteraceae. Painted Daisy is native to the Mediterranean region but has been introduced to other parts of the world, including North America, where it has become naturalized in some areas. The plant prefers full sun and well-drained soil and is relatively drought-tolerant once established.
The plant is an annual that typically grows to a height of 1-3 feet (30-90 cm) and a width of 1-2 feet (30-60 cm). The leaves are finely divided and fern-like, and the flowers are produced in clusters at the top of long stems. The flowers are daisy-like and can vary in color from white, pink, red, yellow, and orange to bi-colored or tri-colored with a dark center.
Glorious rings of multi-color in crews encircle the durable daisy petals a top glossy, bright green, with an almost moist cut foliage. Bright colors of yellow, pink, bronze and maroon, display the strength of pattern and color of 19th century fabric. This cooler season annual plant is an excellent cut flower, lasting long in the vase with flowers up to 3 inches across. Young roots of this plant are edible and used as salad and for garnishing.
Chrysanthemum carinatum is commonly grown as an ornamental plant in gardens, borders, and containers. It is also sometimes used as a cut flower.
