The marguerite has a very long flowering season, from late spring to late autumn,which provides nectar for the bees all summer long. It has long stems, which make the flowers good for cutting. It is also great for container gardening.
Remember to deadhead the spent blooms…I use my garden scissors and snip off the entire stem. New buds appear very quickly. Compact in growth and well branched stems, this annual plant is one of the earliest flowering daisies. Attracting bees, butterflies and birds, it does not attract those pesky deer!
I found these beauties at WalMart. They also come in white and a darker pink. I’m going back for more!
