Question Can Copper Canyon daisies be grown from seed? If so, do you know a source for them? I'm having a hard time finding plants.
Answer Hi Brenda,
Thanx for your question. I've never grown this plant before but it is a member of the Tagetes (Marigold) genus and should be easy to propagate. The plant is Tagetes lemonii. If you do a search on Google, you can find all kinds of references. I noticed it has been offered for sale on EBay. There are several other places where you can find the seeds.
I have been growing plants from seeds for at least 20 years. I have grown literally hundreds of different kinds of vegetables, trees, shrubs, annuals, perennials, tropicals, some cacti, water plants, iris, rose, lilies, cannas, etc. I enjoy starting from seed.
I've been growing my own seeds for 20 years with indoor propagation equipment I built myself. I am also an Allexperts volunteer on the perennial forum. I have completed the Master Gardener course through the Kansas State University Extension. I have experience with a wide variety of seeds and I have also read through Norm Deno's books on seed germination.
