detailed seed-starting info below

Yellow daisies from a tuft of dark-green strap-shaped leaves. Hardy relative of the tender daisies we used to grow as annuals way back when we started gardening. I remember the bunnies were especially fond of them, complicating the process of planting them out in spring; so far, I haven't noticed the same preference for these hardier ones. Our 2009 seedlings bloomed in the summer of that same year, but did not return in spring of 2010. They were planted in a reasonably well-drained area, so I'm not sure what became of them.

In our garden, this plant grows in the following area: left fence nursery area
