General Description

The shrubby evergreen Marguerite daisy is beautiful and durable. The hybrid Madeira™ Cherry Red -- cultivar 'Bonmadcher' -- is compact, well-branched and uniform. Its daisy-like flowers have multicolored centers with dark red, orange and yellow bands. The many petals radiate outward, white at their base but mainly a powdery medium red. The petals have a hint of coral. Madeira™ Cherry Red is a tough plant that is grown as a perennial in frost-free climates and a bedding annual in cold winter regions.

The rounded bushy clump-forming plant has deep green ferny foliage that emits a strong fragrance when crushed. Many daisies are produced in abundance above the foliage. Flowering subsides in very hot weather and deadheading will prolong vigorous bloom.

This easy-to-grow plant excels 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, perfect for seaside landscapes.

Grow Madeira™ Cherry Red Marguerite daisies in containers, as a bedding plant, in perennial borders and cutting gardens for lovely, long-lasting color. Flowering is always best in sunny conditions during cooler months of the year.
