A perennial form of the everlasting daisy, featuring the sunset tones of deep yellow overlaid with pink, and flowering through three seasons of the year. This is a versatile plant, which can be used to great effect in mixed plantings or well suited to a container, allowing you to place it where it can be admired best.
Should be lightly pruned annually after flowering, to keep the form and encourage flowering.
