    A tender evergreen shrub that will provide masses of colour from spring to early autumn. One of the best loved of all the summer bedding plants due to the long-lasting flowers, the pure white daisies with yellow centres look great above the rich green foliage. Like all marguerites, it needs a sunny spot for best results, and should be grown in pots which can be protected during the winter in frost prone areas.

  • Garden care: Pinch out the growing tips to encourage bushiness and apply a deep, dry mulch around the base of the plant in autumn.Take cuttings to ensure against winter losses, however even if top growth is damaged by the frost, the plants often re-grow from the base in spring.
