With 'Creme Brulee' as its parent, 'Sienna Sunset' has 2" daisy-like flowers that are a light salmon/orange and lighten with age. Plants make tight 20" mounds of ferny foliage in full sun and average soil. They flower from mid-summer to early fall. Shear off spent flowers to really keep them going.
