Gardeners' Notes:

Very pretty flowers, deer-resistant, drought-resistant, cold hardy, and repeats if you deadhead - what more could you ask for? When you deadhead, shear the plant right back to 6 inches tall, hit with a little liquid fertilizer in a good drink of water (seaweed solution works great), and the plant will re-bloom in two or three weeks. The foliage is nice when the plant isn't blooming. Divide every two to three years to renew the plant. If you don't deadhead and divide, the plant will literally bloom itself to death, but you can keep it going indefinitely with a little basic care. A favorite with us.

the second year this turned into a beautiful plant that stood straight up, no flopping!

I really like this Anthemis. It is in my garden for its seventh year now, all though they are listed as short living plants. It can flower for a long time with many flowers that are open at the same time to make a great show. If you cut it back the show starts again. Their colour is a warm creamy white...very pretty..and its flowers are about 5 cm across. It is in a full sun position and in my garden. In summer it can be very hot and can stand this very well.

Update 2013...Short living plants? It is still giving a great show in my garden..healthy and smily as ever.
