Fantastic plant doesn't look much initially but wow wait until late spring and watch it take off. Masses of beautiful flowers on every stem, a real show stopper.

Incredible plant!

From a 9cm pot planted last autumn has grown a huge incredible plant which has been smothered in wonderful large daisy flowers for months which the bees adore. It's still smothered now in mid October & looks like it's gonna carry on thru November. Highly recommended for the back of a border

Lots of flowers produced over a long period. A very tall plant that looked lovely with Miscanthus grasses.

Summer daisies

Late summer can be a lacklustre month in the garden, but there’s one group of plants that always shine now - and literally look as fresh as a daisy. With their bright ray petals in yellow, orange, pink, purple or white, daisies flag up their presence to p
