About This Plant

Sun/part shade; deciduous, with feathery foliage and a sprawling, sagelike form. Brushing up against the leaves yields a strong scent reminiscent of citronella and mint. Orange-yellow daisy flowers are unleashed as the days shorten in autumn — often just before the first freeze.

Origins: Mexico

Maintenance

None needed, but can be hedged to contain as it doesn’t flower until the end of the year. Cut back if needed after a hard freeze.

Yellow daisies in autumn with airy foliage and a pungent scent.
