  • Description

  • Notes

A moderately fast, low groundcover, grey fuzzy leaves with bright yellow daisies held above the foliage. Prefers light soil and good drainage and full sun to light shade. Allow plants to be irrigated in mornings so that foliage is dry at dusk. Tolerant and dependable for tough situations needing only some additional irrigation during the hottest seasons.
hardy to 15f
