Greenleaf euryops daisy is only hardy to 22F so I'm not surprised it didn't make it through your winter weather. These plants are also called yellow bush daisy and yellow is the only color they come in. I would consider this plant a seasonal annual in PA and plant it in a container rather than in the ground. When the flowers fade, cut the flowering stem down; wherever you cut, two new flowering stems will appear. By keeping the faded flowers cut off, you'll encourage additional flowering all summer long.

Enjoy!
