June 11, 2015 (before the drought):
These daisies survived a hot summer drought in the center bed.
Nov. 8, 2015:
Planted two more in the street bed. This was the frist one before moving it over.
April 26, 2016: Added a second one and they have done well:
Sept. 9, 2015: Tanacetum coccineum (Pyrethrum) 'Robinson's Red' (24)
I didn't cover the daisies with wire at first and an armadillo rooted around in the
bed so I don't know how many of them will make it. This is after covering them:
May 11, 2016: Tanacetum coccineum (Pyrethrum) 'Robinson's Red' (24)
Only one flower out of 24 has come up so far, but according to the Burgess web site,
these are not supposed to bloom until June-July.
"Pyrethrum extract is used to make organic insecticides with almost instant knock-down.
Since most insects can't tolerate flowering pyrethrum, it helps to keep your garden pest free.
And it only affects harmful insects, not other plant or animal life."
I ordered some Fiesta Daisies, but somehow didn't note where they were planted,
so I won't know until the flowers bloom.
