Plant details

This mat-forming evergreen perennial has finely dissected silver-green foilage. Covered in long-lasting white daisies during early summer, this plant is a stunning tender perennial for bedding displays or gravel gardens. Found growing wild in Sicliy, this drought tolerant species enjoys free-draining conditions in full sun. Take cuttings in late summer or lift plants before the first frosts to overwinter indoors. The Royal Horticultural Society has given this plant its prestigious award of Garden Merit.
