Plants form a spreading clump of very delicate, ferny foliage. This compact selection bears loads of starry soft-pink daisies, from early summer into the fall. Clipping off faded flowers will encourage buds to form all season. Inclined to spread, so dividing every 2 to 3 years in the spring is advisable. Excellent for cutting. Great for edging in the sunny border, massing, or planting in mixed containers. The species is native to the Eastern USA. Tolerates heat and humidity, but prefers a moist site.
