Montauk daisy is an unusual plant with a dramatic appearance. It's a great addition to any garden that's looking for a little late-season color. The plant also has a pungent odor that deters rabbits and deer. Despite these differences, the Montauk daisy has a very similar culture to garden mums. This makes it a good companion to your garden mum program.
Warm temperatures are required for growing. Montauk daisies are cold hardy, but they grow during the summer. This tendency makes them an easy-to-force perennial. Night temperatures must stay above 65 degrees F when forcing for flowering. Cold temperatures cause the plant to remain vegetative. When growing in Spring, plants will require heat at nights.
Montauk daisies flower under short days. Natural-season is the end of September across North America, but blackcloth can be used to force blooms if you want to sales earlier in the season. Under blackcloth, flowering takes about 7 weeks.
Plants require approximately 1.5 times more long days after pinch than garden mums, meaning the vegetative growth is slightly slower. Before blackcloth treatment starts, provide night interruption to get a proper plant size.
Montauk daisies take up a little less space. You should add at least one more cutting per pot compared to garden mums.
