Shrubby "Nippon Daisy" from Japan with stout stems studded with thick widely toothed spatulate leaves with a glossy jade quality; big white daisy flowers with bold greenish-yellow eyes late fall. The "Montauk Daisy" while hardy here with good drainage, blooms so late that we grow them in large low mum pots so we can bring them into shelter in the event we suffer an unusually early killing frost; also effective in containers brought into the greenhouse mid fall to prolong the marvelous display. Needs perfect drainage and light mulch to survive the outdoor winters.
|Cultural Code||HH CGH|
Some of you grow only indoors, some only in terrariums; many of you have hobby greenhouses; while a growing number of customers live in subtropical or tropical areas of the world. These brief codes are an attempt to suggest whether or not a particular plant will do well in your particular conditions.
If an entry has the cluster HP CGH, this means normal house plant culture will be successful if the plant is given a cool CGH moist location; however if the entry has the cluster CGH HP, you would interpret this to suggest that while Cool Greenhouse conditions are needed for total success with this plant, House Plant conditions will be adequate, while not ideal. If the cluster is HH CGH you would interpret this to mean that while in Zone 8 or below this will be winter hardy outdoor, further north it will need considerable mulch, a cold frame, or a Cool Greenhouse to thrive. And so on.×
