General Information: 

The Painted Daisy, scientifically known as Tanacetum coccineum, is a perennial plant that belongs to the Asteraceae family. The Robinson's Daisy variety is renowned for its vibrant and eye-catching blooms, which feature a combination of red, pink, and white petals. These flowers are not only visually appealing but also attract pollinators, making them a valuable addition to any garden.

When it comes to growing Robinson's Painted Daisies, it is important to choose a suitable location. These flowers thrive in full sun or partial shade, so select a spot in your garden that receives at least six hours of direct sunlight each day. The soil should be well-draining and rich in organic matter.

Before planting, prepare the soil by removing any weeds and loosening it with a garden fork or tiller. Incorporate compost or well-rotted manure to improve the soil's fertility and drainage. 

  The recommended spacing for Robinson's Painted Daisies is approximately 12 to 18 inches apart.

As the plants mature, they will require minimal maintenance. Regular watering is essential, especially during dry spells, to keep the soil evenly moist. However, be cautious not to overwater, as excessive moisture can lead to root rot. Applying a layer of organic mulch around the plants can help retain moisture and suppress weed growth.

Deadheading the spent flowers is recommended to encourage continuous blooming and prevent self-seeding. This can be done by removing the faded blooms by hand or using pruning shears. Additionally, dividing the plants every two to three years will help maintain their vigor and prevent overcrowding.

Robinson's Delight Painted Daisies are generally resistant to pests and diseases. However, keeping an eye out for common garden pests, such as aphids or slugs, is advisable. If necessary, use organic pest control methods or consult with a local gardening expert for guidance.
