    Maintenance Notes: 

    While newer Argyranthemum are much more heat tolerant than older varieties, they will still do best with cool night temperatures. Our varieties have been selected to flower continuously without deadheading. If you do live in a hot climate the plants may flush out of bloom if the night temperatures are regularly staying in the high 70's or above. The plants should continue to do fine, give them a trim using a sharp pair of scissors or pruning shears (think of it as giving your plant a haircut). This will help induce more branching and fresh growth and the plants will be at their best when night temperatures drop and the plants begin to bloom again.

    An application of fertilizer or compost on garden beds and regular fertilization of plants in pots will help ensure the best possible performance.

    • I purchased 5 of these this spring and had the wonderful surprise of my life! They continued to blossom over and over with no deadheading!!! I live in SoCal so I can plant earlier. I planted them in pots and in the ground. Both did well. They reached a good 3 feet across with a full white display of blossoms! Now with the warmer weather, I am going to cut some back and see how they do. I will purchase these again next spring if I can find them again!

    • Picked this up at the local nursery. Blooms like crazy even in high temperatures (up to 105 F so far). I have it planted in a raised bed which is irrigated once a week, more often in extreme heat. I do not deadhead this one but that doesn't seem to have affected its blooms, so I plan to leave it as is.

    • Not sure what the bad reviews are about. I live in a harsh climate; southeast Alaska. The winds blow hard off the ocean in summer, and the rain falls as well making the climate challenging. I am a grower and sell these by the boatload (literally-I take my plants to town in a boat to sell). This is one of my top sellers hands down. It is wind hardy, stands up to the toughest rains, and the deer don't eat it. I am too lazy to deadhead, so while they can benefit from it, they still flower profusely otherwise. Sounds like the bad reviews came from locations where it just isn't suited, but for the PNW and southeast Alaska, this is a champ.

    • Deadheading wasn’t necessary but certainly would have helped. I pretty much put this one in the ground and neglected it for the summer with the exception of a little water once in awhile. The plant was very forgiving and produced an abundance of blooms. I’d like to have more of these in my garden next year.

    • I felt compelled to write a positive review for this plant. I was lucky enough to get this plant for free at a local nursery two months ago, so I thought why not? There were no blooms on it yet and it was fairly leggy, so I pruned it back, repotted it in compost-rich potting soil, and placed it in an afternoon sun location with ~6 hours of direct sun. The plant now looks bushier, healthier, and has been blooming for the last month straight in 90+ degree weather. It currently has at least a dozen open flowers with more on the way, and the cute white-petalled flowers last the better part of a week in this dry heat. I choose to deadhead this plant since it looks more attractive to me when it just has fresh flowers. I have had an aphid problem with this plant, but it has been manageable with a weekly high-pressure water spraying on the tender young growth where the aphids hide. I would grow this plant again, especially if I got it for free again!

    • Purchased one in early Spring and planted in perfect location, soil, etc. As others have stated, every bug attacked it...it was constantly peppered with flies. Deadheading way too much. Bloomed for a mere month in June. Here it is, mid November and still no additional blooms even after below 70° days have arrived. I have a pretty green thumb, but it made no difference. Just looks like a healthy green bush.

    • Bought this plant because I love Daisy's and wanted something compact. It was beautiful but I did have to deadhead the flowers to keep it looking good. Worst of all about 4 weeks ago it started to look as though it was dying off now it's totally dead and the weather hasn't even gotten cool. Everything else in the bed is fine

    • I bought several of these to put in a bed with some salvias. They only grew 6 inches tall and it seems every bug attacked it. I was very disappointed in it.

    • These daisies needed deadhesding three times; Early June, Late June, Mid July. For an annual, it's a tremendous amount of work.
