Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener

From midsummer to early fall, ‘Tigereye’ offers lots of large golden-yellow, dark-eyed "daisies" on uniform, well-branched, knee-high plants. This vigorous, fast-growing F1 hybrid is ideal for bright sunny gardens. It grows from seed to bloom in about 80 days.
This warm-season annual or short-lived perennial forms clumps of oval dark green leaves with deep veins. In early summer, it sends up leafy, multi-branched, upright stems that produce numerous semi-double daisy-flowers from their tips and leaf axils. Each blossom has a chocolate-brown central cone surrounded by 20 to 30 bright golden-yellow ray-flowers. Bloom continues all summer if plants are regularly deadheaded. The blossoms attract butterflies and bees.
Grow 'Tigereye' in full sun to light shade and moderately fertile, well-drained soil. Starts seeds indoors in spring, or sow in place after the final frost date. Plants tolerate heat and humidity. This easy and prolifically blooming annual is a great accent plant for annual and perennial beds. Its daisies also make long lasting cut flowers. It can be used as a winter annual in desert regions of the Southwest United States.
