Melampodium leucanthum (Blackfoot Daisy)
Sorry, this product is sold out!
Blackfoot daisy is often underestimated until you see it in full bloom. This unassuming mounding perennial needs sun and well-draining soil to thrive, and it is sometimes finicky during the establishment period. But it is well worth the effort once it is happy, offering a shower of white blooms in exchange for very little care. When the plant becomes leggy, it benefits from a haircut – a simple trim to the basal rosette. Blackfoot daisy is a great addition to a rock garden or a sunny border.
