General Description

Swan River daisy is a short-lived tender perennial, often grown as an annual. The finely divided, bright green leaves form a soft, spreading mound. 'Strawberry Mousse' has single daisy-like flowers with narrow bright pink petals surrounding a yellow-green center. The blooms are held above the delicate foliage from midsummer to autumn. While this plant can tolerate a variety of soil condition's and types, it grows best in well drained soil and full sun. It is drought tolerant but grows a little faster with a light watering during drier periods. Strawberry Mouse Swan River daisy is early to bloom and excellent for use in hanging baskets or containers but is also useful in the rock garden or as an edging.
