This is my third attempt at growing this daisy. First two times, it died due to insufficient watering. Third time I planted in a shaded, moist area. So far, so good. I would love for this to expand like my other daisies.

Aglaias are solid performers in my garden. I purchased them from Jackson and Perkins in 2004 and planted them in dappled sunlight. They have grown fuller each year each year and bloom for weeks. They can get a bit floppy, so I use a grow-thru support for each clump.
