This is probably Brachycome "Strawberry Mousse" or a form of Swan Rivery Daisy which is a tender perennial but would be grown as an annual. (It is perennial in mild climates but not in areas with cold winters such as yours.) This is a cool season plant that does best when temperatures are below about 75 degrees. It prefers full sun but will tolerate partial shade, especially when temperatures are high. Use a rich soil that drains well so that the soil is moist but never soggy. Allow it to dry very slightly between waterings. If you can get it to survive the summer it should look great again when temperatures cool in the fall.
