Description

English Daisy was well-established as a garden flower in America by 1700, and was known by a number of common names, including Bone Flower, Herb Margaret, and Measure of Love.  Thomas Jefferson listed it for planting with other hardy perennials at Monticello in 1771.  This cool-season, short-lived perennial bears small double daisies in shades of red, pink, and white and prefers cool, moist soil. Jefferson-documented: This plant was documented by Thomas Jefferson in his Garden Book, Notes on the State of Virginia, or other writings.

Sow seeds indoors 8-12 weeks before last frost date at 65˚F.  Transplant to 3" pots once they have several true leaves, then harden off and transplant outdoors after last frost.  Approximately 260-300 seeds per packet.
