About This Plant
A herbaceous annual, with delicate, fernlike foliage and tiny golden flowers throughout the warm season. The leaves have a strong lemony odor when touched or crushed.
Don’t be fooled by its stringy appearance in a 4-inch pot at the garden center; once Dahlberg daisy gets in the ground, it’s one of the best summer annuals, and it self-sows freely in alkaline or gravelly soils (but not in mulch). Use it in borders, butterfly gardens and in pots.
Deadheading may prolong the bloom a bit at the end of summer, but Dahlberg daisy thrives on neglect. Avoid overwatering in soggy or poorly drained sites; it can’t tolerate wet feet.
