These are so beautiful in the garden and so hard you have no work to do once planted. You just can't go wrong with these beautiful plants.
This daisy looks wonderful, even luscious. it is more self contained than the usual white daisies. my regular daisies get leggy and long. This daisy, however, stays compact in its place, is a nice buttery yellow with the extra petals so it looks fuller and makes a compact, soft punch statement. stands out in my gardens. i would recommend investing in one. unfortunately mine have Not spread. sigh.
