Mountain Daisy

Low growing evergreen with pure white flowers

Price 1 Litre Pots £3.99 Each - 3 for £10

The Mountain Daisy forms a neat low evergreen mound of small rich-green leaves. Short, erect stems hold up large daisy-like white flowers from mid to late spring. These cushions of flowers look striking in spring, especially when mixed with spring flowering bulbs such as tulips or daffodils.


It is at its best in rock gardens, wall crevices and in courtyard gardens. Ideally place where it will enjoy a good a sunny spot or just a little shade.


It loves any moist, free draining soil - water well until it is established but avoid an over watered location. To maintain its neat look, cut back in spring after flowering.

Planting instructions

Water the plant in its pot thoroughly before planting – give it a good soaking. Prepare the area by digging a hole twice the size of the pot. Dig compost into the base of the hole. Remove the pot and position the plant in the hole, with the top of the rootball about level with the surrounding soil. Refill the planting hole with a mixture of garden soil and compost, firming as you go. Water in well and keep well watered during the plant's first year.

Planting site Rock garden, Patio container, Gravel garden, Cottage garden, Informal garden, City garden, Courtyard garden, Garden edging
