Pyrethrum is also called "Painted daisy" for its bright flowers in shades of red and pink. It is the source of the organic insecticide, Pyrethrum, and the chemical model for synthetic pyrethroids used in most household bug sprays. Pyrethrum is not long lived in the garden, but can be started easily from seed to renew plantings.

Painted daisy (C. coccineum, also called Pyrethrum roseum) - a bushy perennial from two to three feet tall; feathery bright green leaves and single, daisy-like, long-stemmed flowers. Available in pink, red, and white. The white-flowered varieties are grown commercially, dried, and used as an insecticide. Blooms in late spring, and may reflower if cut back after first blooming.
