About This Plant

Full sun to partial shade. Nearly evergreen in warm winters. A small, clumping shrub daisy, with dusty grey-green foliage and small, orange or yellow daisies from spring to frost. Thrives in poor soil and has high heat tolerance. If it becomes leggy, shearing by half in mid-summer promotes denser growth. Favorite larval food of checkerspot butterflies.

Maintenance

Grooming, light pruning or periodic cropping, winter cleanup.
