This Federation Daisy is an absolute stunner, deep Magenta, doubled flowers cover the plant that will make an impact with a decorative pot to contrast the colour. Argyranthemum are easy to maintain varieties. They can withstand short periods without water and only need a trim back, perhaps once a year, to maintain shape and encourage new foliage production. Sugar Cheer is one of our most popular Federation Daisies, give it a try and you'll understand why.

Height to 60cm

Width to 45cm

Plant in full or part sun position with well drained soils. If drainage is poor, such as in most clay soils, break down the clay or build up your garden bed to provide good drainage.
Federation Daisies aren’t particularly thirsty plants but they will benefit from regular watering, particularly whilst establishing and when the flower buds are forming. The plants will be able to withstand short periods of dryness once established. Tub plants should be kept evenly moist.
Feed in autumn and spring with controlled release fertiliser to promote flower formation and good plant health.
Federation Daisies were bred to branch naturally from the base and stay nice and compact. They don’t need pruning as a rule, perhaps a very light trim to remove spent flowers, if desired. Do not cut into old wood as this could kill the plant.
Pests and Diseases
The plants are seldom attacked by pests, but if aphids appear they can be hosed off the plants with a strong jet of water. Alternatively, apply an appropriate insecticide at the rate recommended by the manufacturer.
