The small, tough but shrubby Courtyard® Buttercream Marguerite daisy -- cultivar 'Pb1v2' -- is admirable for its frilly foliage and abundant blossoms. A compact, upright plant that bears lots of flowers, the blooms occur on stem tips. First appearing early in the spring for a long flowering season, each flower opens with a lemon yellow center surrounded by pale buttery yellow petals. Flower heads are double, with the eye filled with many tiny petals that create a fuzzy button-like effect.
This bushy clump-forming perennial has deep green, deeply lobed leaves that are ferny and emit a strong fragrance when crushed. Its daisies are produced 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.
This easy-to-grow plant grows beautifully 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.
Grow Courtyard® Buttercream Marguerite daisy in seaside gardens, containers, or sunny garden beds. The blooms draw butterflies and can also be cut for flower arrangements.
