Anthemis tinctoria

Golden Marguerite

Sun-loving evergreen or deciduous perennials that bloom so prolifically, plants may exhaust themselves and die. Often lacy foliage is aromatic, especially when bruised. Some species of Anthemis are weedy. Flowers are good for cutting. Plant in neutral or slightly alkaline soil. Increase perennials by division in early fall or spring. Sow seeds in early spring for annuals and in late summer for biennials. Stake seedlings, which are easily damaged by wind and heavy rain.
