This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: fertile, well-drained soil
  • Rate of Growth: average
  • Flowering period: June to August
  • Hardiness: borderline hardy (may need protection in colder regions)

    Lax stems are studded with grey-green foliage, which is virtually smothered by an abundance of yellow-eyed mauve daisies when they appear in summer. A very pretty addition to a patio pot or rockery, it is also useful for adding colour to the front of a sunny border - and it will thrive in a coastal location.

  • Garden care: Cut back to ground level in autumn and avoid winter wet.
