Perennial Marguerite Daisy


Perennial Marguerite Daisy
Anthemis tinctoriaCharme
(AN-them-is) (tink-TOR-ee-uh)

This little yellow Daisy did well most of the summer. A couple of weeks ago it started to falter and soon after we decided to shear it down. There are already signs of new growth but it probably won’t make it back to flowering this season.

Growing to a height of about 14 inches tall this flower is nice for the front of the border. It has the ability to adapt to different soils and it is drought tolerant once established. It also grows in containers and the cutting garden. Dividing every two to three years is helpful to retain vigour.

I am not familiar with this daisy. Sure is a cute little bloom.
