The Q&A Archives: Blue Marguerite

Question: I've heard that in addition to yellow and white marguerite there is also a blue variety. What can you tell me about their growing habit? Are they a perennial or annual? Are they easy to grow?

Answer: You may be looking for either a 'Michaelmas Daisy' or 'African Daisy'. Both are members of the Aster family and both have ray-type blue flowers with yellow centers. Their culture is the same as for Marguerite; full sunshine, regular waterin the summer. Each of these plants will grow to 3 feet high with an equal spread, and are perennials that are easy to grow.
