Witte and A. J. Wendel, Groningen: Wolters, []. The dried flower buds are the source of the insecticide 'Pyrethrum'[1, 4, 14, 18, 46, 57, 61]. The pyrethrins are produced in the yellow disc florets[]. The highest pyrethrin content is from the flowers when they are in full bloom (%) and lowest in the preceding period (%)[].

What Is Pyrethrin? Here’s where it gets mildly confusing, depending on what you read. The gist is that pyrethrin is derived from dried chrysanthemum flowers, specifically from Chrysanthemum cinerariifolium.. These chrysanthemums look more like standard daisies than ornate China mums. Chrysanthemum (Chrysanthemum Coccineum Robinson's Mix) - Chrysantheum Coccineum flower seed, also known as Painted Daisy, produces 2 - 3 inch daisy-like flowers in red, pink, lilac and white with a yellow center in late spring to early foliage has fern-like divided leaves with a strong scent and is attractive even when the blooms are Range: $ - $

Grow it in borders, use as bedding, and harvest for fresh cut flowers. A vigorous upright grower, 24 inches by 18 inches, it is covered in flowers in May and June. The flowers are 3 inch, single or double, daisy-like flowerheads that are held above the foliage by long, wiry stems/5(3). Eiichiro Ueyama also improved the method of growing pyrethrum flowers and had his methods published in a book. Pyrethrum consequently became the main source of household insecticides such as mosquito coils, and Japanese pyrethrum reached its peak production of 13, tons of dried flowers per annum in
