~ ~ ~ WE OFFER BOTH PKT. & BULK SIZES ~ ~ ~ Chrysanthemum cinerariifolium - Pyrethrum C. cinerariifolium is called the Dalmatian chrysanthemum, denoting its origin in that region of the Balkans (Dalmatia). It looks more like the common daisy than other pyrethrums. Its flowers, typically white with a yellow center, grow from numerous fairly rigid stems. Plants have blue-green leaves and grow to between 45 to 60 cm in height. The plant is economically important as a natural source of insecticide. The flowers are pulverized and the active components, called pyrethrins, contained in the seed cases, are extracted and sold in the form of an oleoresin. This is applied as a suspension in water or oil, or as a powder. Pyrethrins attack the nervous systems of all insects, and inhibit female mosquitoes from biting. When not present in amounts fatal to insects, they still appear to have an insect repellent effect. Insecticides Sprays Pyrethrum was used for centuries as an insecticide, and as a lice remedy in the Middle East (Persian powder, also known as "Persian pellitory"). It was sold worldwide under the brand Zacherlin by Austrian industrialist J. Zacherl. The flowers should be dried and then crushed and mixed with water. It should be noted that though the pesticide is organic, it can still be harmful to humans. Companion planting Because of the natural insecticidal properties of the pyrethrums, they are used as companion plants, to repel pest insects from nearby crops and ornamental plants. They are thought to repel aphids, bed bugs (cimex lectularius), leafhoppers, spider mites, harlequin bugs, ticks, pickleworms and imported cabbage worms, among others that are in gardens and farms. For example, they are planted among broccoli plants for protection from several common insect pests.

Upon my inquiring, they sent me an email; they promised they would ship the seeds. They said it's going to be another 15 days waiting. Now it is another one month. I still don't get my stuff. Though it is a little bit money, I hate the cheating.
DONT BUY! nothing has grown it has been over a month now and still nothing. I just dumped all the dirt with the seeds into another plant.
These seeds are a waist of time do not do what I did and purchase them.
And this is from someone who has a green dumb.
yet ... They may be beautiful but for now first impression was not good.
