Maintenance Notes: 

While newer Argyranthemum are much more heat tolerant than older varieties, they will still do best with cool night temperatures. Our varieties have been selected to flower continuously without deadheading. If you do live in a hot climate the plants may flush out of bloom if the night temperatures are regularly staying in the high 70's or above. The plants should continue to do fine, give them a trim using a sharp pair of scissors or pruning shears (think of it as giving your plant a haircut). This will help induce more branching and fresh growth and the plants will be at their best when night temperatures drop and the plants begin to bloom again.

An application of fertilizer or compost on garden beds and regular fertilization of plants in pots will help ensure the best possible performance.

  • I am a professional landscaper and have had it with this plant. They need constant deadheading to look halfway decent, and all that I planted this year stayed small and weak. This includes in beds and containers. I am waiting for Proven Winners to me up with a variety that needs no deadheading but until then, it is off my list!

    Unsatisfied Did not survive, inferior performance or did not bloom well - won't grow again.

    I bought this plant for the first time this spring. It has bloomed continuously through out the summer and is still blooming at the end of September. It has required very little care. I would recommend this plant to everyone. It is one of the best plants I have every bought.

    Outstanding My favorite plant, I recommend to others all the time and explain the reasons why I like it so much.

  • Unbelievable! It was in blossom when I planted, at least tripled in size throughout the growing season, and continued to bloom without deadheading, well into frost, and beyond. Amazing plant!
