Masses of striking, sunniest orange marguerite daisies rise above bushy, ferny fragrant foliage to 2' tall. This is an unusual, hard to find critter that tolerates dry soil very well and blooms throughout Summer, making it a valuable member of your garden. Edible leaves can be added to salad or as a garnish. Makes a lovely cut flower and dried blossoms are a fragrant addition to potpourri. To 18" wide, shear it back and give it a side-dressing of compost whenever it needs refreshing. Tolerates temps down to -40 degrees F and self-sows politely.
