This entry has yet to be reviewed and approved by L2G editors.
A collection of durable shrubby tender perennials usually grown as annual bedding plants, the Shere™ Series of Marguerite daisy was developed by the Syngenta agricultural company. Shere™ Marguerite daisies feature single or semi-doubled, mainly white flowers and narrow, deeply cut leaves that have a lacy or feathery texture. These upright yet compact plants bear lots of flowers on stem tips. They first appear early in the spring and continue for a long flowering season. Each flower opens with a button-like yellow eye, and depending on cultivar, bears either white or light yellow petals.
These bushy clump-forming perennials reveal grayish green, deeply lobed leaves that are ferny and emit a strong fragrance when crushed. Flowers occur 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.
Shere™ Series Marguerite daisies are easy-to-grow plants, excelling in full sun and moderately fertile garden soil with good drainage. Regular light pruning will maintain compact growth, increase flowering and provide cuttings for propagation. Plants are wind and salt tolerant.
Grow any of the Shere™ Marguerite daisies in seaside gardens, containers, or sunny garden beds. The blooms draw butterflies and can also be cut for flower arrangements.
