The electric green flowers of the green chrysanthemum are a charming contrast in a garden or bouquet. Green or "shamrock" chrysanthemum seeds, popular in Asian countries, may not be easy to find, but they require no special care to grow.

Seed Characteristics

Green chrysanthemum seeds are essentially the same as all chrysanthemum seeds. They are members of the daisy family. They are very small, about 45,000 seeds per ounce. They prefer to be cool and dry until planted.

Finding Seeds

The easiest way to keep green chrysanthemums in your garden year after year is to collect the seeds from the flowers in autumn, store them through the winter and plant them in the spring. Initially, you can find seeds through online suppliers or, if you are lucky, your local garden centre may carry them or be able to order them for you.

Planting Seeds

Green chrysanthemum seeds may be planted in early spring for an autumn bloom. They may be started indoors or in the garden, in seed-starting medium or soil at a depth of twice the size of the seed. They require constant moisture and a temperature of about 21-24 degrees Carenheight to germinate. When they are about 2 inches tall, they should be thinned to 1 foot apart. They require full sun to grow to maturity and bloom.
