Marguerite Daisy LaRita Rose boasts over six months of colour with rosy pink petals surrounding a large central disc. Marguerite Daisies flower from spring to autumn, in fact in mild climates they will flower pretty much year round with 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 that 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. Plant where they will receive at least six hours of sun a day. It is a good idea to protect your young plants from frost.
Once your Marguerite Daises are up and flowering, regular dead heading, or picking will promote even more blooms
