Plant Description and Details

A small star for rock gardens, dry banks and alpine plantings, Cut-leaf Daisy is a good thing in a small package. It's cold-hardy, short and cute with low, lacy leaves and button flowers held above the leaves. It sends a taproot down more than 10 inches. It's suitable for exposed banks and soils with good drainage. Also known as "Fernleaf Fleabane," it was historically hung in houses or burned to repel insects.
