Anthemis tinctoria 'E.C. Buxton'
- available to order from autumn
- 9cm pot
This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.
- Position: full sun
- Soil: moderately fertile, well-drained soil
- Rate of growth: average
- Flowering period: June to August
- Hardiness: fully hardy
Pretty, lemon-yellow daisy-like flowers appear in a profuse display throughout the summer, above the finely cut, aromatic, mid-green leaves. This cheerful, long-flowering lemon-yellow marguerite will lift a sunny border and will flourish in poor, well-drained soils. It copes well with drought and the flowers are good for cutting.
- Garden care: Support with brushwood or link stakes in late spring before the flowers appear. After flowering cut back the faded stems to the ground to encourage new growth from the base of the plant.
