The Daisy Butterfly, 'Argyranthemum frutescens', is a fantastic release from Proven Winners. The Daisy 'Butterfly' is a heat-tolerant marguerite Daisy with oomph. 'Butterfly' produces canary-yellow flowers throughout the summer even without deadheading. Daisy's require a sunny spot with fertile, well-drained soil and should be kept well watered in the summer.
Daisy's may be used as a cut flower and they are excellent in window boxes, pots, and rock gardens. The Daisy is attractive to bees, butterflies and/or birds, plus they are resistant to deer. These Daisys are winter hardy to USDA Zones 10-11 and they are grown as an annual in other cooler climatic zones.
Deadhead spent flowers to encourage additional bloom. The deeply cut, dark green leaves are aromatic when bruised.
For zones 9-11, this plant can also be a perennial.
