Quick to grow and establish into a nice, ball shape that is smothered in flowers from spring on. Great in pots or gardens.
Marguerite Daisies flower from spring to autumn, in fact, in mild climates, they will flower pretty much year round. The most prolific flowers occur spring and autumn, when the nights are cool.
Marguerite Daises are one of the ultimate low maintenance, long flowering plants you can get, and these dwarf varieties are a cut above the rest. The soft, lacy foliage grows to a compact, uniform 40-60cm mound and is literally covered in flowers for months and months. As a fabulous bonus, the blooms are great for picking, easily lasting a week or two in a vase.
Marguerite Daisies were hugely popular few years ago, before falling out of fashion. But with their long flowering period and easy care, practical disposition, combined with new breeding in a wider variety of colours, shapes and sizes, they are making a long overdue come back.
Plant Marguerite Daisies in moderately fertile to humus rich soil. Place where they will receive at least six hours of sun a day. It is a good idea to protect your young plants from harsh frosts.
Once your Marguerite Daises are up and flowering, regular dead heading, or picking will promote even more blooms.
Marguerite Daisies are well suited to coastal areas, sunny beds and borders as well as large containers. They are both salt and wind tolerant.
