Neutral Todd_Boland On Dec 16, 2004, Todd_Boland from St. John's, NL (Zone 5b) wrote:

There are two forms of this plant; those with only discoid flowers (ie. they have no petals) and those with ray and discoid flowers (ie. a typical daisy flower). Obviously, the latter is more showy. It is an alpine or subalpine plant that is common throughout the mountains of western North America. Flowers are usually white but sometimes they may be pale pink or pale mauve-purple. They are low growing so ideal for a rock garden setting. They are easy to grow but often short-lived so collect seed periodically to keep them going.
