Glebionis coronaria (Garland Chrysanthemum) [25 Seeds]


Germination Information: Start the seeds indoors in late winter to mid spring, pressed into the surface of the growing medium, in a warm, bright place. A heat mat encourages quicker sprouting. Set the seedlings outdoors after all danger of frost has passed. Or, sow directly in your garden (right where you want the plants to grow) around your last frost date for summer bloom. Sowing again (or instead) in midsummer can produce plants that add a fresh look and flavor to the fall garden. In warm climates, you could even grow it for harvest as a winter green.

Garland chrysanthemum or crown daisy (Glebionis coronaria, formerly Chrysanthemum coronarium) isn’t too often seen in ornamental plantings these days, and that’s a shame. This old-fashioned favorite typically grows 2 to 3 feet tall, with upright stems that carry bright green, deeply lobed, aromatic leaves and an abundance of daisy-form summer flowers that may be solid yellow or creamy white-and-yellow. It looks right at home in a cottage-garden setting. Also known as shungiku, chop-suey green, or edible chrysanthemum, this species also earns a place in the vegetable garden for its tender, young leaves, which are used in Asian cuisine. (The flavor is best in cool weather, particularly if you’re using the raw leaves in salads; it can be overpowering in summer.) The flower “petals”—technically, ray florets—are edible too. Full sun. Annual.

Collected in early to mid August 2023. At least 25 seeds. Shipping to US addresses only.
