Description

Also known as Tickseed. Plants form a low mound of leathery green leaves, bearing many upright stems of single daisy flowers for many weeks, starting in early summer. This selection features bright yellow flowers with a dark red-brown centre blotch. Removing faded flowers regularly will encourage blooming to continue into the fall. This is a nice, compact selection that will not get overly tall or floppy. Plants are easily divided in early spring, and this should be done every 2 to 3 years. Tolerant of hot, humid summer climates. Excellent for borders, as well as in containers. Attractive to butterflies.
