Anthemis tinctoria ‘Charme’  Perennial Marguerite Daisy

Zone 5-9



The hardy Marguerite Daisies are among the best choices for summer-long colour in the sunny border. This compact selection forms a dome of ferny green leaves, studded with small yellow daisies for the entire summer. Terrific for edging sunny borders and also a good choice for mixed containers or tubs. Shear lightly in midsummer if flowering stops. Relatively drought tolerant, and adapts well to poor soils. Divide plants in the spring every two years to maintain vigour.
