Description EDIT
Growing to 60 cm tall, the plants bloom quickly from an early spring seeding – either directly in the soil or started inside in early April.

Medium to pale yellow daisy-like flowers are produced in abundance from mid June until late August on this species.

Full sun and well-drained soils suit it best.
Growing EDIT
Cover the seeds with .5 cm of soil and keep moist.
