These pretty, bright flowers were irresistable to me at the nursery! But i had few blooms through most of the summer - it didn't really do much until late September. (That may just be me.) The flowers are smaller than on the other marguerites i have, and the "deep rose" color fades to pink after a day or two in the sun.
