Anthemis tinctoria 'E.C. Buxton'
- Position: full sun
- Soil: moderately fertile, well-drained soil
- Rate of growth: average
- Flowering period: June to August
- Hardiness: fully hardy
Pretty, lemon-yellow daisy-like flowers appear from June to August above finely cut, aromatic, mid-green leaves. This cheerful, long-flowering lemon-yellow marguerite will lift a sunny, well-drained border. It is also drought-tolerant, although it is usually a short-lived plant.
- Garden care: Support with brushwood or link stakes in late spring before the flowers appear. After flowering cut back the faded stems to the ground to encourage new growth from the base of the plant.

Comments about Crocus Anthemis tinctoria'E.C. Buxton':
Although rather short-lived (but easily replenished with spring heel cuttings), this anthemis is a real beauty, especially when mixed with plants with purple blooms (lavender, verbena, etc.). Mine grow much taller than the description indicates, so do require some staking to stop them flopping. But I'll be trying the Chelsea chop this year, to extend flowering and keep the plants a little more compact.
- Your Gardening Experience:
In the third week of this month you can 'Chelsea chop' your summer-flowering perennials to delay their flowering times. Sedums can be cut back by two thirds to provide lusher foliage, but at the expense of flower.Read full article
