Medium - 2' - Plant 18" apart. - Orange daisies. An excellent plant for cut flowers. Self-sown seedlings are a good source of new plants.

Free flowering, provides an abundance of yellow daises all summer and fall for bouquets. The foliage is elegantly cut. Avoid heavier soils for these pest free plants.

I've always had the plain yellow Anthemis tinctoria but this is first time I've tried this orange species. It was easy to start from seed and it made a nice show of blooms it's second year. I love the orange color and the shorter plants didn't seem to flop like the yellow does.
