Common namepink daisy mum
Familyasteraceae
Life cycleperennial (Z5-9)
Flowerspale pink/yellow (fall)
Size2-3'
Lightfull sun
Cultural notesordinary garden soil

Tough plant, with lots and lots of single salmon-pink, yellow-centered daisy flowers for weeks in fall, the very last of our garden perennials to come into bloom. Keeps blooming through freezes. Tolerates drought. Spreads nicely by roots, and produces some seedlings as well, although they don't always come true - good for some interesting color variations!
