(pot marigold, ruddles, common marigold, garden marigold, English marigold, or Scottish marigold, is a plant in the genus Calendula of the family Asteraceae. It is probably native to southern Europe, though its long history of cultivation makes its precise origin unknown, and it may possibly be of garden origin. It is also widely naturalised further north in Europe (north to southern England) and elsewhere in warm temperate regions of the world.
Excellent in places where exquisite low growing flowers are desired.
A monotypic genus of flowering plants in the aster family, Asteraceae, containing the single species Callistephus chinensis. Its common names include China aster and annual aster. It is native to China, and it is cultivated worldwide as an ornamental plant.
This is an annual or biennial herb with one erect, mostly unbranched stem growing 20 to 100 centimeters tall. The alternately arranged leaves vary in shape or size. The basal leaves usually fall away be flowering. Leaves around the middle of the stem are a few centimeters long and are borne on winged petioles. The blades have serrated edges. Leaves toward the top may have smooth edges. The large solitary flower head grows at the top of the stem and sometimes on branches. The head is lined with layers of phyllaries, those in the outer layer large and leaflike, measuring up to 3 centimeters long. The inner layer can be purple-tinged. The head contains one or two rings of ray florets, most often in shades of reddish purple. Cultivated varieties can have ray florets in most any color, including red, pink, blue, purple, and white. They are up to 3.5 centimeters long. There are many yellow disc florets in the center. The fruit is a rough-textured, glandular, purple-mottled cypsela that turns gray with age. It has a pappus composed of one outer layer of reddish scales and two inner layers of white bristles.
This plant is a naturalized species in some areas in Europe, outside of its native range.
This species has been grown and bred extensively in cultivation. Cultivars are available with flowers of many colors, varying heights, and single and double heads. The plants are susceptible to fusarium wilt, a fungal disease. Some cultivars are more resistant to this than others.
A species of flowering plant in the family Campanulaceae, native to the Carpathian Mountains of Central Europe. It is a low-growing herbaceous perennial, with long stems bearing solitary blue bell-shaped flowers. Several cultivars in shades of white, blue, pink and purple, have been developed for garden use.
This plant has gained the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit.
A perennial plant, native to the United States and is the state flower of Wyoming. It has a number of common names including Wyoming Indian paintbrush, narrow-leaved Indian paintbrush, desert paintbrush, Wyoming desert paintbrush, Wyoming paintbrush, linaria-leaved Indian Paintbrush, and Indian paintbrush.
It grows up to 1 meter in height and has linear leaves which are between 20 and 80 mm in length and have up to 3 lobes. The flowers, which consist of a red to yellow calyx and yellow-green floral tube, appear in panicles or spikes between June and September in its native range.
Gerniation of seeds require a short period of cold stratifacation.
Commonly known as cornflower, bachelor's button, bluebottle, boutonniere flower, hurtsickle or cyani flower, is an annual flowering plant in the family Asteraceae, native to Europe. "Cornflower" is also used for chicory, and a few other Centaurea species; to distinguish C. cyanus from these it is sometimes called common cornflower. It may also be referred to as basketflower, though the term also refers to the Plectocephalus group of Centaurea, which is probably a distinct genus.
It is an annual plant growing to 16-35 inches tall, with grey-green branched stems. The leaves are lanceolate, 1–4 cm long. The flowers are most commonly an intense blue colour, produced in flowerheads (capitula) 1.5–3 cm diameter, with a ring of a few large, spreading ray florets surrounding a central cluster of disc florets. The blue pigment is protocyanin, which in roses is red.
In the past it often grew as a weed in crop fields, hence its name (fields growing grains such as wheat, barley, rye, or oats are sometimes known as corn fields in the UK). It is now endangered in its native habitat by agricultural intensification, particularly over-use of herbicides, destroying its habitat; in the United Kingdom it has declined from 264 sites to just 3 sites in the last 50 years. In reaction to this, the conservation charity Plantlife named it as one of 101 species it would actively work to bring 'Back from the Brink'. It is also, however, through introduction as an ornamental plant in gardens and a seed contaminant in crop seeds, now naturalised in many other parts of the world, including North America and parts of Australia.
A very popular garden bed flower.
Everything that's said about the above is true about this plant too except it's about 4 inches shorter when mature.
Also a very popular garden bed flower.
Again, everything that can be said about the above 2 can be said about this too, except it's a mix of 5 different colored blooms. Possibly the most popular bachelor button species because of its mix.

The plants are very easy to grow; simply scatter the seed in spring or fall on loosened soil, and compress into the dirt; do not cover. routine garden watering will increase germinaton rate.

(Rainbow Mix) - You will do best to start these seeds to attract attention to your garden! The Chrysanthemum Rainbow Mix offers colors of purple, orange, scarlet, rose, salmon, yellow and white and puts on a dazzling display of color. Painted Daisies also make great cut flowers so that you can bring the color indoors! Some flower seeds can be difficult to germinate; however, this is not the case with Chrysanthemum flower seed. Grow Chrysanthemum Carinatum plants in a rich, well-drained, evenly moist soil and in full sun. Good drainage during the winter is essential.
For areas with short growing seasons, start the Painted Daisy seeds indoors 4 - 6 weeks before the end of frost season. Lightly press the flower seeds into starter mix and keep seeds moist but not saturated. Transplant seedlings outdoors after danger of frost has passed. Or, for warmer climates, sow the Chrysanthemum seeds directly outdoors in a prepared seedbed once frost season is over. Lightly cover the flower seeds with soil and keep the seeds moist until germination occurs. Pinch back young daisy plants to keep them bushy. Deadhead spent flowers regularly to encourage continued blooming.
Excellent in all areas where a low growing beauty is desired.
