I must say I am disappointed in the color of this daisy. The online photo and even the tag color show a pleasing pale yellow. The flower in my garden is yellow the first day of opening and quickly fades to a dirty white.

Report on 2016
This plant has grown and spread but flops over in bloom . I believe the flower heads are just to heavy for the stems.
I tried using this flower as a cut flower and the stems drooped

My opinion of this daisy is don't waste your space
