The plant you love to neglect! Little-known and less appreciated, Dahlberg Daisy (also known as Golden Fleece) is a quiet treasure for baskets, containers, and the garden. No seed is easier to grow, and once the blooms begin, you can forget about it for days on end . . . but you won’t, because the cheery yellow daisies, framed in very lush, ferny foliage, are too eye-catching!
Native to Texas and Mexico, this annual (technically it’s a tender perennial, but unless you’re in zone 9, 10, or 11, you’ll be growing it as an annual) sets wonderfully fragrant, finely cut foliage of brightest green. The leaves are topped for months on end by brilliant blooms an inch across,arising in spring and summer. Just about a foot high and wide, this plant packs a lot of interest into a small space!
Sow seeds indoors 6 weeks before last frost. Then, once the seedlings have at least two sets of true leaves, transplant them 6 inches apart in any sunny to partly-shady spot. Dahlberg Daisy is not fussy about garden soil.
Primarily used as in hanging baskets because its size is just right for a bushy, color-drenched display, it is invaluable for those patches of poor soil where little else is happy. Use it as you would any other wildflower to create come-again color in any inhospitable patch of soil. And it makes a sunny, big-impact edging or window-box choice! This cheerful flower was recommended in the March 2014 issue of Southern Living thanks to its vibrant bright yellow blooms! Discover the joy of this underused native plant! Pkt is 100 seeds.
