Beautiful! Started blooming a week after I potted.

It was growing great

She arrived healthy and bloomed wonderfully... And then my nephew plucked her whole roots and all, haha. We re planted her in hopes she would survive.

Love Daisy's

The plants arrived looking very healthy. I planted them the next day and watered them really good and they are continuing to thrive. Only complaint is how long it took to get them. Was told they were going to ship on a certain date and a week later I still did not have them. Called GrowJoy to find out where they were and did not get a return call. After 2 weeks, still no plants. I was thinking that they messed up my order and was not going to get them. I made a second call to GrowJoy and again no return call. Plants finally arrived about 17 days after told shipping date.

Beautiful contrast in color, different from other variety I had in the past. I am hoping this one is a true perennial because the 2 I had planted in different areas last year did not come back. Such a pretty plant all together
