Plant Description and Details

The summer sun lends its cheering effect to this little perennial. Oregon Sunshine gives the world a foot-wide splash of many quarter-sized golden daisy blooms. Underneath are twisted, many-lobed and silvery leaves, protected from the sun's rays by acottony covering. Plant it liberally in perennial borders or in those tough-to-landscape gravelly or sandy spots and watch it thrive.
