PLACEMENT & CULTIVATION
The lightly fragrant flowers of swan river daisy outdo themselves in blooming, often covering the filigree foliage in an extravagance of one-inch daisy flowers with yellow or striking black centers. They are best in temperate summer areas where the nights cool down and are elegant at the front of the garden or in containers, their graceful habit softening edges. Shear lightly after the first flush of bloom and fertilize to encourage a renewed flowering.
1" per week; somewhat drought tolerant once established.
Not particular about soil pH. Neutral and Alkaline
Mix a few inches of compost into the soil prior to planting. Supplement with an organic fertilizer.
Diseases & Pests:
Protect young seedlings from slugs by using an organic iron phosphate pellet. Avoid foliar disease by watering only in the mornings so foliage dries quickly.
