This plant is amazing! I bought 3 small 2" pots from Bluestone Nurseries last spring for hardly anything and they have completely spread out! I have posted a picture from Geneva, Ohio and it shows the bed and it is around 5 feet wide and long now! They just started opening- June 16, 2010. THEY LIKE BEING WATERED REGULARLY when the leaves first start emerging. You will see them wilt and turn under. Just water and they come right back. I am so pleased with these plants! I love Bluestone and have great success with any plants I buy from them! It is worth a trip or vacation to visit their nursery in Madison, Ohio. You save tons by buying directly from them. Everything is cheaper in person than buying out of the catalog online or by phone. And it is so fun going through all their plants! Their shasta daisies are all fabulous! My favorite is "Old Court" crazy daisy. Love them!

I got itty bitty plants from a mail order catalog. They didn't look like they would do much the first year. By year 2, they were huge and full of flowers. I guess I got lucky finding a happy spot for them.
Cut flowers lasted almost 2 weeks. A great plant to have in your garden.

Unsurpassed in the border and for cutting.
Give them a sunny spot and a balanced plant food in the spring and again when buds form. Remove uncut flowers as they fade to promote further bloom.
