Argyranthemum frutescens | Also known as: Marguerite | Rating: 1 votes | Print / Pdf

Candy Marguerite, sounds like a showgirl and looks like one too.

Argyanthemum frutescens evergreen shrub that sports delightful, daisy-like flowers in Spring, Summer and Autumn. A bushy, bedding plant. Hailing from sunny climes, this flower enjoys full sunlight, and well-drained soil. The flowering season is long, but you can help extend this by regular deadheading. During the ever increasing dry spells we now see in the summer, ensure that you water the Candy Marguerite to keep the surrounding soil moist. A great plant for flower borders, pots and containers or courtyard gardens.
