A mound forming, hardy, compact plant with bright yellow daisy-like flowers from late Spring to Autumn. The flowers smell faintly of honey making them attractive to bees and butterflies. Ideal in containers, hanging baskets and pots, in border edges and rock gardens, and good groundcovers in mass plantings.
