The daisy is a classic flowering perineal that grows the best in hardiness zones 4 to 9.
It is best planted in the early to mid-spring to allow the roots time to establish themselves.
They have narrow, serrated leaves and flower blooms in various colors, including whites, pinks, purples, and yellows. Daisies will begin blooming in the summer, and its cold-tolerance allows it to continue into fall.
As the flowers die off, trim them at the bloom's base to extend the growing season. These plants can grow from 10 inches to several feet tall and must be planted in an area protected from high winds, lest they get blown over.
They prefer soil that is well-drained with a sandy consistency.Soil that holds too much water will cause fungal diseases and weaken the plant.
Daisies are somewhat drought tolerant once established but must be watered regularly in their first few seasons.
The plants require full sun for optimum growth, and while it will tolerate occasional partial shade, this could stunt the plant's growth. The flower head will start to wither in the fall, signaling an end to its blooming season. At this time, the plant can be pruned down to about an inch or two above the soil line.
Daisies reproduce by their root system, and after about 2 to 3 years, they will need to be divided out to prevent overcrowding. It is best to divide the plant in early spring before the flowers begin blooming, or in late fall after the blooming season is over.
