Throughout the growing season beautiful semi-double daisies of soft rosy pink cover Summer Song™ Rose. This free-flowering, compact tender perennial was bred by Daniel Bede McDonald in Cobbitty, New South Wales, Australia along with many other fine bedding Argyranthemum.
The tough shrubby Marguerite daisy is popular for its beauty and resilience. An evergreen perennial, it originates from the Canary Islands, Madeira and other regions in Macaronesia, where it survives in sunny, rough-sloped terrain. In temperate zones with cold winters it is grown as a bedding annual from spring to fall.
Marguerite daisy is shrubby and clump-forming and deeply lobed leaves that emit a strong fragrance when crushed. Its pink daisies are produced above the foliage and appear from late spring till frost, or almost year-round in frost-free climates, and are attractive to butterflies. Flowering subsides in very hot weather and deadheading will prolong vigorous bloom.
The easy-to-grow Summersong™ Rose exceeds 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, so they are ideal for seaside gardens, containers, or sunny garden beds. Blossoms make cheerful, quality cutflowers for a vase.
