The original species is a large white flowered shrub from the Canary Islands. It is rarely seen in cultivation but has been bred, hybridised and generally cultivated to an extent that most modern varieties bear little resemblance to the original plant. Australia has bred some of the world’s bets forms and improvements are continually being made. Larkman Plants have set about collecting some excellent new and old forms to release under the name of Dazzling DaisiesTM.
Argyranthemum, commonly known as Marguerite Daisy is a genus of tough but colourful plants that make an excellent, long flowering edition to any garden. They will tolerate a range of conditions including full sun to part shade, moderate frosts, extended dry periods and coastal plantings. They perform well in a pot, make good hedges - both formal and informal, and will impress everyone with their display in a mass planting. To keep the Dazzling DaisiesTM looking the best they should be given a prune and feed (with Osmocote Slow Release fertiliser) in both mid spring and mid autumn.
Lemon Lace is a typical Marguerite Daisy with large soft green cut foliage and multitudes of soft yellow daisy flowers. It was bred by Steve Dodson from South Australia where it performs well all year round. Growing to only 50cm tall and 60cm wide it is a tidy and compact addition to an y garden – formal or cottage. Plant with Lavandula ‘Hazel’ and Salvia coahuilensis for a colourful year round garden.
