Uses

Edible uses

Notes

Young shoots and stems - raw or cooked[1][2][3][4][5]. Strongly aromatic[6][7]. Flowers - raw[5]. Blanched briefly and added to salads[6]. The centre of the flower is bitter so only the petals are normally used[8].

Flowers

Leaves

Material uses

Possibly a good companion plant, protecting neighbouring plants from caterpillars etc[Gardener's World, 28/04/89]. There is a report that secretions from the roots can be effective in controlling nematodes in the soil, but this has not been substantiated[8].

Unknown part

Propagation

Seed - surface-sow in spring to early autumn in situ. The seed usually germinates within 10 - 18 days at 15°c[8]. Successional sowings can be made at intervals of a few weeks in order to ensure a constant supply of young plants[8]. Autumn sowings succeed in mild areas[11]. An autumn sowing under cover will often supply leaves all winter[8].

Practical Plants is currently lacking information on propagation instructions of Chrysanthemum coronarium. Help us fill in the blanks! Edit this page to add your knowledge.



Cultivation

Succeeds in ordinary garden soil[12], but it prefers a well-drained fertile soil in full sun[7][8]. It will tolerate light shade in the summer[8]. Tolerates a pH in the range 5.2 to 7.5.

Plants do not grow well at temperatures above 25°c, tending to become bitter in hot weather[8]. Plants withstand light frosts[8]. Whilst this species is often grown as an ornamental in the West, in the Orient the variety C. coronarium spatiosum L.H.Bailey is comonly cultivated as a vegetable[7]. This variety is treated separately. There are many named varieties[6]. It takes 4 - 5 weeks from sowing the seed to the first harvest when plants are grown on the cut and come again principle[8].

Plants often self-sow when they are well-sited and the soil is disturbed by hoeing etc[K].
