Plant details

An ideal plant for a damp border or beside a pond, 'Britt-Marie Crawford' produces elegant deep maroon foliage that is large and kidney-shaped. This is the perfect contrast to its flowers which are large, shaggy, narrow-petalled deep orange daisies which appear in loose, flat-topped sprays in mid-summer. It looks good planted in large drifts beside ponds, or makes an excellent focal point in a large border. Incorporate planty of organic matter before planting and mulch well in the spring, to prevent plants from drying out during hot weather.
