Marguerite Daisies flower from spring to autumn, in fact in mild climates they will flower pretty much year round with the most prolific flowers occur spring and autumn, when the nights are cool.
Marguerite Daisies will give you an almost constant supply of pickable flowers that easily last a week or two in a vase. They are one of the ultimate low maintenance, long flowering plants available, and these dwarf varieties are a cut above the rest.
The evergreen, erect shrubs grow to nice little mounds of soft, finely dissected, mid green leaves, with just a hint of silver. Marguerite Daisies were hugely popular few years ago, before falling out of fashion. But with their long flowering period, ease of care and practical disposition, combined with new breeding, there is now a wider variety of colours, shapes and sizes and they are making a long overdue come back.
Plant Marguerite Daisies in moderately fertile to humus rich soil where they will receive at least six hours of sun a day. It is a good idea to protect young plants from frost. The most prolific flowers occur in spring and autumn when the nights are cool.
As Marguerite Daisies are establishing, you can pinch out the new growth, this will encourage a more bushy plant. Once they are up and flowering, regular dead heading, or picking will promote more blooms.
