Plant details

This cheerful, spreading, summer bedding plant is ideally suited for baskets and containers, or tumbling over low walls. The bright yellow, single daisy flowers are like stars among the ferny foliage. They will enhance the summer sunshine in any garden. Although a short-lived perennial, we grow it as a half-hardy annual, sowing seed indoors in spring, and planting out plants in late spring, after the last frosts.
