Shungiku (Tong Ho Chrysanthemum) Seeds - Glebionis Coronaria - Edible & Choice

Quantity: 100+ Seeds


Shungiku, aka Tong Ho Chrysanthemum or Glebionis Coronaria, is an edible plant from the Daisy family, Asteraceae. Shungiku lives as an annual and originates in Southern Europe. Although all kinds of chrysanthemum are considered to be edible, Shungiku produces leaves that are much larger than other varieties, and the flavour is much nicer too as it has been bred for many years as a culinary vegetable. The leaves are most often used, but the flowers are also edible and delicious. As well as being edible, pollinators are very attracted to the flowers, so it's a great plant to have around the garden to increase crop pollination. 


All seeds are organic and open pollinated.

  • Growing Instructions

    Directly sow Shungiku seeds in the earth as soon as the ground becomes workable in early spring to early summer, or start in pots to later transplant into the earth. Sow seeds 1/8 inch under the soils surface, and keep moist and warm until sprouts emerge. Under ideal growing conditions, plants will grow to be about two feet tall, and equally wide, but can be planted much closer together to create a dense patch. Feverfew thrive best in full sun, but will also grow well in partial shade. It likes loamy or sandy soils, and doesn’t seem to be particular to PH, but does like the soil to be free draining of water. These plants are drought, flood, deer, and pest resistant.
