Cultural Notes: Federation Daisies are a tough plant but will benefit from regular watering, particularly whilst establishing and when the flower buds are forming. The plants will be able to withstand short periods of dryness once established. Tub plants should be kept evenly moist. Feed in autumn and spring with controlled release fertiliser. They don’t need pruning as a rule, perhaps a very light trim to remove spent flowers, if desired. Do not cut into old wood as this could kill the plant Information & Images courtesy of Ramm Botanicals
