Plant details

Prolific plants for a sunny well-drained border, covered in masses of pale, yellow, single daisy-like flowers throughout the main summer season. Pale varieties like 'E.C. Buxton' are easier to team with other colours than bright golds, since they go as well with pastel shades as with hot, bright colours. Use towards the front of a medium to large herbaceous border or island bed, where the plants receive as much sun as possible - they do not enjoy growing in the shade of other plants.
