Part of the 'Federation Daisy' range. These shrubs are excellent performers in patio pots and in the garden, providing colour from late autumn through to late spring. These daisies are woody at the base and covered with herbaceous growth that flushes with medium sized flowers. Whilst they are true perennials, their useful lifespan in the garden is usually 2-3 years. Regular maintenance will prolong plant life. A. Sunray has single, white flowers with a large yellow centre. Grows approx 60cm tall x 1m wide.

Cultural Notes: Plant in full or part sun position with well drained soils. If drainage is poor, such as in most clay soils, break down the clay or build up your garden bed to provide good drainage. Feed in autumn and spring with controlled release fertiliser to promote flower formation and good plant health. Federation Daisies 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.
