Description... Seen on roadside embankments and in waste places during summer are these white daisies, swaying on slender stems amongst the long grasses. This flower, perhaps more than any other epitomizes the idyllic image of a flower meadow, and hot hazy summer days. The plant has long lobed leaves, looking a little like those of a dandelion, though less lush. The flowers are carried on wiry stems, with a few slender leaves along its length. This flowers from June to August and stands up to 60cm (2ft) in height, often less, with a 20cm (8in) spread.

Planting your new plant
Water the plant thoroughly when you get it home, and plant out as soon as possible. Make the hole for the plant larger that the pot it is in and the same depth. When removing the plant from the pot, squeeze the sides of the pot to loosen it. Loosen the roots of the plant, put the plant in the hole spreading the roots to encourage them to grow outwards. Fill round the edges of the rootball with soil to the same level as the surrounding soil.
Care for your plant
Plants in containers need plant food to thrive when in growth. Seek advice from your retailer regarding best product(s). Follow the packet instructions when applying plant food. Remove fading flowers to encourage fresh ones.
