General Description

Big pink daisy flowers that seem to float above a compact mound of dark, frilly foliage are qualities of the Shere™ Monroe Rose Marguerite daisy. It was the result of a controlled breeding program by Syngenta Seeds in Enkhuizen, The Netherlands in 2003. First appearing early in the spring for a long flowering season, the flower heads have a yellow eye center surrounded by a single row of rose-pink petals. The slightly pleated petals fade to lighter pink as the flower ages. The flowers measure up to 4-inches (10 cm) wide.

This bushy, shrub-like tender perennial has dark gray-green, deeply lobed leaves that are ferny and emit a strong fragrance when crushed. Its daisies are produced above the foliage and appear from late spring till frost or almost year round in frost-free climates. Flowering subsides in very hot weather and deadheading will prolong vigorous bloom.

This easy-to-grow plant grows beautifully in full sun and moderately fertile garden soil with good drainage. Regular light pruning will promote compact growth, increase flowering and provide cuttings for propagation. Plants are wind and salt tolerant. Grow Shere™ Monroe Rose Marguerite daisy in seaside gardens, large containers, or sunny garden beds. The blooms attract butterflies and may also be cut for flower arrangements.
