These are among my very favorite flowers. The foliage is pretty (although can be difficult to distinguish from Queen Anne's Lace) and it's one of the earliest flowers to bloom in my garden. I like that it dies back after flowering so I can plant it with later-blooming flowers in the same space. I've had difficulty growing from seed but once successful the plants do very well in my garden.

These are very pretty flowers and Dead Heading might help encourage new flowers. Just a thought...

These are beautiful, bright colored daisies with lacy foliage. I was hoping they would rebloom, but they didn't. My seed packet says they are hardy in zones 4-9. Light aids germination.
