This entry has yet to be reviewed and approved by L2G editors.
A dwarf, mounding selection of Marguerite daisy, Pretty in Pink™ bears double-form (extra petals) flowers of medium pink. A blossom looks somewhat jagged, with variable petal lengths within the flowerhead. Pretty in Pink™ is derived from a species is native to the Canary Islands, Madeira and other regions in Macaronesia where it survives in sloped terrain.
This shrubby clump-forming selection has deep green, narrow-lobed leaves that emit a strong fragrance when crushed. Its daisies are produced just above the foliage from late spring till frost or almost year-round in frost-free climates.
Marguerite daisies are easy-to-grow plants that prosper in full sun and moderately fertile garden soil with good drainage. An evenly moist soil is best. Regular light pruning will promote compact growth, increase flowering and provide cuttings for propagation. Plants are wind and salt tolerant. They grow as tender perennials in frost-free climates and annuals in temperate zones.
Pretty in Pink™ Marguerite daisies are exceptional plants for seaside gardens and quick container gardens due to their fast growth and prolific flowering. In the heat of midsummer flowering may wane slightly, but pick up again later once nighttime temperatures become comfortably cooler. Use Marguerite daisies to embellish mixed beds and borders or to fill in hanging basket or container compositions.
