This entry has yet to be reviewed and approved by L2G editors.
Throughout the growing season beautiful anemone-type daisies of white and pink cover Twinkle™ Rose. This free-flowering, compact tender perennial was introduced into the horticultural trade in 2004. The center of each blossom is a crested tuft of creamy pale yellow to white that ages to powdery rose. Surrounding these centers are pale pink ray petals that later become deeper rosy pink.
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 and seaside plant communities. In temperate zones with cold winters it is grown as a popular bedding annual.
Marguerite daisy is shrubby and clump-forming and deeply lobed leaves that emit a strong fragrance when crushed. Its semi-double blossoms 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 Twinkle™ Rose Marguerite daisy 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, so they are ideal for seaside gardens, containers and sunny garden beds. They make good cutflowers, too.
