    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.

    • Purchased one in early Spring and planted in perfect location, soil, etc. As others have stated, every bug attacked it...it was constantly peppered with flies. Deadheading way too much. Bloomed for a mere month in June. Here it is, mid November and still no additional blooms even after below 70° days have arrived. I have a pretty green thumb, but it made no difference. Just looks like a healthy green bush.

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

    • Bought this plant because I love Daisy's and wanted something compact. It was beautiful but I did have to deadhead the flowers to keep it looking good. Worst of all about 4 weeks ago it started to look as though it was dying off now it's totally dead and the weather hasn't even gotten cool. Everything else in the bed is fine

    • I bought several of these to put in a bed with some salvias. They only grew 6 inches tall and it seems every bug attacked it. I was very disappointed in it.

    • These daisies needed deadhesding three times; Early June, Late June, Mid July. For an annual, it's a tremendous amount of work.
