Golden marguerite is a cheerful flower. Also known as golden chamomile, it produces a cloud of yellow daisies on feather gray-green foliage. Plants spread quickly, requiring division every two years or so.
After their first flush of bloom, they get rather rangy, so cut them back by about half to keep them neat-looking and encourage further bloom.

In fact, there are some 50,000 named hybrid cultivars in a range of flower sizes (the minis are very popular), forms, and plant heights. Some are fragrant.The flowers are borne on leafless stems. Although each bloom lasts but a single day, superior cultivars carry numerous buds on each scape so bloom time is long, especially if you deadhead daily. The strappy foliage may be evergreen or deciduous.Shown above: 'Little Grapette' daylily
Like so many grasses, fountaingrass is spectacular when backlit by the rising or setting sun. Named for its especially graceful spray of foliage, fountaingrass also sends out beautiful, fuzzy flower plumes in late summer.
