Plant Type: Perennials

The hardy Marguerite Daisies are among the best choices for summer-long color in the sunny border. Plants form a bushy mound of ferny green foliage, bearing loads of small bright-orange daisies from early summer on. Useful in containers, as well as in the garden. Relatively drought tolerant, and adapts well to poor soils.


Growing & Maintenance Tips:

Removing faded flowers regularly will greatly increase blooming time. If plants become floppy in mid-summer, shear them back to 6 inches to rejuvenate. A short-lived perennial, but will often self seed.
