  • Notes

Herbacious perennial to 1' tall and 3' wide. White daisy-like flowers bloom mainly spring and fall in the low desert, summer time for higher elevations. Plants are fairly short-lived, but will reseed to keep population intact. Light shade is preferred in low desert. This cultivar blooms heavily. Bright green, fine textured foliage. Needs moderate irrigation. Prune back in winter to rejuvenate. Can reseed with adequate water.
Planting: 1. Dig a hole 1" less the depth and 2 times the width of the container. 2. Fill hole with water, let soak. 3. Set root ball in hole. 4. Fill hole halway with native soil and water. 5. Finish backfilling hole, build basin and water.
