Plant details

Still popularly known as marguerites, or Paris daisy if white, argyranthemums have become very popular for summer colour. Once available only as a single white daisy, the basic marguerite has been bred into a wide range of hybrids, including 'Vancouver', a double pink variety with anemone centres. It is a perennial and can be perpetuated from cuttings just like a pelargonium or fuchsia. With careful training, a straight cutting can be trained into an impressive standard, the perfect way to display the flowering plant in a container or the centre of a bed. Now properly listed as Argyranthemum 'Vancouver'. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it its prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM).
