|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?

|Anacyclus pyrethrum var. depressus, I got one cheap from the supermarket recently but it doesn't yet have flowers! |
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! 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! If it lives I will send you some Myriam.|
