Plant Description and Details

Like gold coins, the flowers of the Sundancer daisy wave cheerfully in the summer breeze, held above a low-growing cluster of leaves by long (14"), leafless stems. This creates the illusion that that flowers are suspended in mid-air, without any stemsat all. It does well in harsh conditions, keeping the leaf profile low, but putting on a good show of flowers to feed native pollinators. Unlike Shasta Daisy, Sundancer keeps its petite size and dainty growth habit without spreading.
