Plant description

blazer rose

Argyranthemum Blazer Rose  bears masses of fabulous mid-pink flowers, with a large anenome centre, against mid-green foliage.
Marguerite daisies are a compact sub-shrub that originate from the Canary Islands. They have a compact growth habit, are free flowering, and are troubled by few pests and diseases. They are good for garden beds and borders, and also make excellent container plants.
Marguerite daisies are rewarding garden plants. They grow best in a sunny position in moist, well drained soil. The main flowering is in spring and autumn, with some flowers at other times. A light trim after each major flush will encourage new growth and more blooms, and an application of fertiliser at the same time is beneficial.
