    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. This standard shaped plant looks elegant in any setting, and can either be used to add height to a mixed border or pot it up and use it as a focal point. Like all marguerites, it needs a sunny spot for best results, and should be grown in a pot which can be protected during the winter in frost prone areas. The ceramic pot shown is not included, however, if you wish to pot yours up, we do have a wide range of pots on our website to choose from.

  • 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, and remove any growth from below the crown of the plant as soon as it appears.
