Lovingly known by some as crazy daisy. This is that sweet little candy and white daisy you see clinging for dear life from stone walls and amongst paving. I say clinging on, but it positively thrives in these conditions, finding a home in places where nothing else would. Given a well drained position this daisy will thrive, seeding itself around. The flowers begin a ruddy pink, soon fading to pure white, carried on long stalks they make a lovely colourful daisy cloud, softening the edges of walls and paving alike.

Available late April 9cm pots £4.00.
