- Tips for growing Nippon daisy


Nippon daisy prefers a natural environment. A sunny, well-ventilated spot is ideal.


The soil should be well-drained. It is important to keep its thick leaves moderately, not excessively, moist.


Prune as necessary to prevent overgrowth  and cut back old leaves and dead branches to keep the plant healthy


The first half of the plant’s Japanese common name, Fukiage, derives from the name of a place in the southern part of Wakayama City, in Wakayama Prefecture, the Kansai Region.


In the Heian period (the late 8th to 12th century), this area was a beach full of these chrysanthemums. The overwhelming beauty of the flowers inspired Sugawara no Michizane, a famous scholar, poet, and politician of the time, to write a waka poem. The plants swaying in the autumn breeze evoke a beach landscape adorned with their flowers.
