I bought an Anthemis Susannah Mitchell, last year. I love the cute button like daisy flowers. On the positive side, they grew in an area with no morning sun and only 3 hours of sun in the afternoon. They bloomed well, although I am sure they would have bloomed their heads off in more sun. I am wondering though if they are going to be a problem. I bought one small pot and from that, the plant has spread out in every direction and now covers about a 3ft x 3ft area in one season. I am keeping my eye on it and next year will see how it does. Luckily I put it somewhere that butts against the foundation of the house and the bulkhead on two sides, so it can't go too far. I imagine it is easy to remove.
Golden Marguerites are a mainstay in my high-altitude garden (7600 feet) here in the Colorado foothills. They're dependable, reliable, self-seeding, colorful (especially if I remember to shear them after the first bloom so I can enjoy the re-bloom later in the season), drought-tolerant (especially important to an area that gets on average 18 inches of rain per year), look spectacular when trained into drifts in the naturalized garden, and the deer and elk don't like them!
