Maintenance- Design- Planting Tips

Rhodanthemum hosmariense has lovely silver foliage and white daisy flowers. This plant makes a wonderful edging plant. We also like Moroccan daisy because it flowers profusely in the winter when not much is in bloom.

Don't over-water this plant or it will rot. It can survive on very little water.

The only maintenance we do to this plant is occasional deadheading of spent flowers.
