Canary Island Daisy



The attractive, easy-care silver foliage of this low-growing plant is reason enough to make room for it in the garden. The sulfur-yellow daisylike flowers that decorate it for weeks throughout summer are a bonus. Growing just 30 inches tall and slightly wider, it forms a dense mound of foliage when young, and it has a more open habit as it ages. Canary Island daisy is not a particularly long-lived plant -- expect it to thrive for three to five years. It grows best in full sun and fast-draining soil. Water sparingly.
