The Q&A Archives: Nipponanthemum Montauk Daisy

Question: Do you know where I can find Nipponanthemum Montauk Daisy? Also when planting in shade or partial shade native flowers where can I find mycorrhizal fungi?

Answer: Soils in natural settings are full of beneficial soil organisms including mycorrhizal fungi. Research indicates, however, many common practices can degrade the mycorrhiza-forming potential of soil. If the topsoil has been removed during construction or site preparation, so of these beneficial soil fungi may be missing. If this is the case in the planned planting area, you may want to add mycorrhizal fungi, but there are different formulations for different plant types. You can purchase via the internet from several sources.

Here at the Q and A forum we can help solve garden problems but we have no way of tracking plant inventories at garden centers. You may need to phone your local garden centers to see if they have Montauk daisy in stock, or you may need to order from an internet source.

Best wishes with your garden!
