A naturally mounding plant with strong growth and early flowering. The mid sized, burgundy flowers open freely with a large, golden disc.
Marguerite Daisies are incredibly generous plants and will give you an almost constant supply of flowers from spring to autumn and these colourful blooms easily last a week or two in a vase. They are one of the ultimate low maintenance, long flowering plants, and these dwarf varieties are a cut above the rest.
These evergreen, erect shrubs grow into nice little mounds of soft, finely dissected, mid green leaves. Marguerite Daisies are well suited to coastal areas, sunny beds and borders as well as in containers. They are impressively both salt and wind tolerant.

Marguerite Daisies were hugely popular decades ago, before falling out of fashion. But with their long flowering period, ease of care and practical disposition, combined with new breeding, there is now a wider variety of colours, shapes and sizes to choose from and they are making a long overdue come back.

Plant Marguerite Daisies in moderately fertile to humus rich soil where they will receive at least six hours of sun a day. It is a good idea to protect young plants from frost while young. The most prolific flowers occur in spring and autumn when the nights are cool and climate permitting, they can flower sporadically for the rest of the year.

Once they are up and flowering, regular dead heading, or picking will promote more blooms. Never prune to dead wood, but a good prune after flowering will help maintain their bushy habit. They are short lived perennials (2-5 years), so you can enjoy a few years of amazing displays with this sort of treatment. Fertilise annually in spring.

If you grow your Argyranthemum in pots, you will need to water regularly over the warmer months to maintain flowering. This is because potting mix is perfectly drained, so dries out quickly. It is also a good idea to add some liquid fertiliser, in spring, these plants work hard so appreciate a bit of an incentive to keep looking as good as they can.

Argyranthemum are commonly known as Marguerite Daisies and Federation Daisies.
