I grew this once from seed, and it was a very cute little plant and a profuse bloomer. It bloomed from early July through September. The plant is a small ferny/grassy mound, and produces tiny daisy-shaped flowers on short stalks above the mound. It reblooms constantly without deadheading.

The only trouble I had with it was that germination was very poor, and transplant success was also poor.
