General Description

The small, tough but shrubby Sassy® Compact White Marguerite daisy - cultivar 'Sascot Whit' - is admirable for its mounding foliage and small blossoms. A hybrid tender perennial released in 2007, it's widely grown as an annual. First appearing early in the spring for a long flowering season, each flower opens with a golden center surrounded by short white petals. The blossoms are button-like, and begin to appear later in spring compared to the series companion cultivar known as Sassy® White. Sassy® Compact White also develops a much tighter plant habit in comparison.

This bushy clump-forming perennial has 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 Sassy® Compact White Marguerite daisy in seaside gardens, containers, or sunny garden beds. The blooms draw butterflies and can also be cut for flower arrangements. The low mounding habit makes it a good choice as a massed groundcover in a flower bed from spring to hard fall frosts.
