I just love this flower!!!!! Review by Marcine - Firestone, CO
Posted on 2012-08-03 00:23:21

To me this is the perfect daisy like flower. Tolerates drought, handles cold, and keeps coming back year after year. Mine are mixed in with Shasta Dasies (which are a bit taller) and they compliment each other well. I just love the yellow color as well.
