garden plans for Golden marguerite
Golden marguerite is exceptionally drought tolerant and grows in poor soil. Both characteristics make it a great plant for areas inhospitable to lots of perennials: rock gardens; full-sun foundation borders; and hot, sandy planting sites. Other drought-tolerant plants for dry sites include blanket flower (Gaillardia), autumn sage (Salvia greggii), agastache, beardtongue (Penstemon), lavender, and some varieties of phlox. Plant these low-water plants together to create a patch that will attract bees, butterflies, and other pollinators.
Golden Marguerite Care Must-Knows
Plant it in full sun and well-drained soil. Avoid heavy clay soils and low areas that experience standing water, because good drainage is essential to this plant's success. If grown in soil that is rich or too fertilized, golden marguerite may get floppy and need to be staked. This perennial will not thrive in the hot, humid conditions of the Deep South.
Plant nursery-grown transplants in spring or early summer. Water plants well after planting, and then water every couple of weeks during the first growing season to promote a strong root system. Deadhead after flowering to encourage a second flush of blossoms in late summer or fall. Cut plants back to about 6 inches tall after they flower a second time to prevent golden marguerite from setting seed. Divide every couple of years.
