Great Plant.


Chrysanthemum nipponicum or Montauk Daisy

Here is a plant I highly recommend for your gardens.  Unlike the more common Leucanthemum superbum or Shasta daisy which is an herbaceous perennial that blooms in early summer,  Montauk Daisy forms a shrubby mass of sturdy stems that grow three feet in diameter and just as tall, and blooms from September until frost.  I love the two inch flowers and how they brighten the fall landscape.  Grow in any soil in full sun.  This plant will tolerate very dry locations once established.
