Thank you for the article, kniphofia! The only problem I've had with English daisies has been finding red ones. There are some good ones in PF, but just try to find them in a nursery here or on the internet at some affordable price - extremely difficult. I'm crazy about Pomponette and Polar.
Wouldn't it be great to have a lawnful like the photo? Thanks again. :-) Great pics
Are they biennial or what? I have trouble keeping them alive, but I don't pay them much attention, and if they DO take 2 years to come back, I'm probably not waiting long enough. I always like them when they're blooming! :)
Thanks for the great article on one of my favs. They are such strong performers here starting in March and blooming all summer. I grow mine from seed and they self sow for a few years before they peter out. McGlory I haven't found seed for red ones. Some of the mixes say 'red' but they are dark pink.
I planted some a few years ago, not the bellis version, and they are everywhere! In my rockwalks, grass, other beds. I have subsequently tried to dead head to prevent their self seeding where ever the wind will carry them, not to mention the birds. Haven't decided if I like their habits or not, but they do blossom every year.
