Marguerite Daisy Orange (Anthemis Sancti-Johannis) - These daisy-like flowers are among the best choices for long-lived color in the sunny border. Start Marguerite Daisy seed for a wonderful display of color and plants that feature ferny, mounding foliage and a profusion of bright orange daisies. The bees and butterflies love the sunny orange blooms! This lovely drought tolerant perennial is also known as St. John Chamomile.

Marguerite Daisies work well in containers and in the sunny perennial garden. They also make great cut flowers. Anthemis St. John is pretty drought tolerant and adapts well to poor soils. When blooms are faded, deadheading regularly will greatly increase blooming time. If plants become floppy in mid-summer, shear them back to 6 inches to help them rejuvenate. Chamomile St. John's tends to be a short-lived perennial, but it will often re-seed by dropping their own flower seeds in the late fall.

Sow Marguerite Daisy seeds indoors, 6 - 8 weeks before last frost is expected. Use quality starter mix, sow the Marguerite Daisy seeds on the surface and lightly cover. Keep the flower seed moist until germination. Transplant the Anthemis seedlings outdoors after danger of frost has passed. Or, sow Anthemis flower seed outdoors in prepared soil after danger of frost.
