PLACEMENT & CULTIVATION
Golden marguerite 'Kelwayi' is an excellent deer-resistant plant for borders and containers. It thrives in full sun and well-drained soils, including sandy ones. However, it is intolerant of clay soils or the extreme heat and humidity of the South. This plant is perfect for rock gardens or at the edges of cottage gardens in gritty soils and should be sheared after blooming, leaving a few seed heads to self-sow and renew plantings. It looks beautiful when combined with lavender, Eryngium, and Santolina. A short-lived perennial.
