A fast growing carpeting evergreen perennial that has delicate finely cut silver foliage that becomes greener in winter. The foliage has a refreshinly pungent or fruity smell when crushed. In early summer the simple long lasting yellow-centered white daisies emerge and provide a mass of colour. A great plant for a naturalised planting scheme as it will self-seed freely. It is known to be resistant to deer.

  • Garden Care: Lightly trim the plant after the first flush of flowers to encourage more to come. Cut it back harder when the flowering has finished to keep the plant nice and bushy. Avoid excessively wet soils in winter.
