Product Details

We've found a Marguerite Daisy that doesn't swoon in summer heat: Argyranthemum frutescens is a yellow-flowered variety named 'Butterfly' that begins to bloom almost the moment it's planted and continues with nary a pause till frost. Even under hot, dry conditions, these plants produce such a mass of buttery daisies that you can hardly see the deep green foliage.

'Butterfly' has a mounded form and is suited for use near the front of a border or in a large continer. It also makes a striking, short-term hedge. Given full sun, regular watering, and ocassional grooming, it will fill your summer with countless sunny daisies.

The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.


We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. We also ship a wide range of containers and planters, tools, supplies, fertilizers, garden wear, garden decor items, as well as indoor decorations like wreaths and dried bouquets when available. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the green Shipping Details box for each item. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at the expected time of delivery.


We guarantee to ship plants that are in prime condition for growing. If your order is damaged or fails to meet your expectations, we will cheerfully replace or refund it. Please contact our Customer Service Department at 1-800-503-9624 or email us at [email protected]. Please include your order number or customer number when contacting us.

Charming and Prolific Bloomers!

I bought several of these last spring to fill some of our deck planters, and I'm so impressed with them. They are so charming, with their happy yellow flowers, and they bloomed non-stop until about November.

I've tried several annuals for the planters, but these are my favorites, for sure. I'll keep coming back for them!

Latin Name Pronunciation: ar-jer-an'theh-mum  

A group of annual, summer-flowering Daisies that bloom long and hard on bushy, mounded plants with lacy foliage that sets off the flowers to perfection. A good size and habit for mixed borders or container growing, and a carefree disposition that needs only an occasional deadheading or pruning to look its best and encourage rebloom. Give them full sun and plant in average garden soil.
