Features

People say I have a BIG BUD.

Though she may look like a typical daisy at first, look again at her large, snow white flowers which blanket the plant and all the buds along each stem. Because of better branching and many side buds, this daisy blooms much longer than typical daisies do, often all summer long if deadheaded. Stronger flower power = Daisy May!
