  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: moderately fertile, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: June to August
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Pretty, lemon-yellow daisy-like flowers appear from June to August above finely cut, aromatic, mid-green leaves. This cheerful, long-flowering lemon-yellow marguerite will lift a sunny, well-drained border. It is also drought-tolerant, although it is usually a short-lived plant.

  • Garden care: Support with brushwood or link stakes in late spring before the flowers appear. After flowering cut back the faded stems to the ground to encourage new growth from the base of the plant.
