Regular price $3.45
Chrysanthemum leucanthemum (Asteraceae)
A hardy perennial, often forming dense colonies once established. A native of Europe, it has naturalized throughout all regions of the United States. The leaves are very thick, and feel leathery to the touch. Flowers are pure white with mustard yellow centers, individually borne on single erect stems. Prefers fertile soil, in full sun or partial shade. Competes well with grasses.

Suggested use: Excellent as a ground cover or border since the foliage is attractive and remains green year round. Miscellaneous: An ideal cut flower for arrangements lasting up to ten days. A prolific re-seeder.
