I bought this pretty small plant last year in a garden centre, it was with the annuals..
When open, the flowers had white petals and yellow centres like a big sized daisy..
I had forgotten to take a picture of the whole plant, but the first one shows a bit of it, maybe someone recognizes it? Smiling

Anacyclus pyrethrum var. depressus, I got one cheap from the supermarket recently but it doesn't yet have flowers! Hilarious!

There was another with more sivery foliage which had a cultivar name but I don't remember what that was.. could have been this one but it doesn't sound familiar ..Anacyclus pyrethrum var. depressus compactum 'Silver Cushion'

It could have been 'Gnome' the more silvery leaved one but it didn't look a lot different and I thought the green leaved one might be hardier. It's listed as Garden Gnome..

'Silberkissen' sounds like silver leaves.

Mount Atlas Daisy should be a perennial , it is here in zone 5 .
A very nice little plant , it self sows here and has established a nice colony.
Great in a rock garden.
Keep believing ,hoping,and loving
all else is just existing.

NIce to know it's very hardy Cinda! Usually those with more silvered leaves are mediterranean plants which can withstand heat and dryness, if they have the named one next time I shop I might get that too.

Thanks Janet, I think it was Anacyclus pyrethrum var. depressus,
The plant was labelled but I had forgotten to note it down, I remember now it was not a cultivar name but a specie name..

Nice to know it is a perrenial Cinda! Mine has given up the spirit because of being too wet in the cold season, poor thing! Sad I don't have a right spot in the garden and in a pot plants are more vulnerable to get too wet..

Mine is still in a small pot by my wall, maybe I should put it in a greenhouse until spring if cold and wet kills it. It might live in my dry bed under the Oak, if I can find space for it! Rolling my eyes. If it lives I will send you some Myriam. Smiling
