Golden marguerite (Anthemis tinctoria)
Genus:  Anthemis
This clump-forming perennial produces many weeks of daisy-like flowers in summer. It is great in borders and works well as a cut flower.
Care:  Provide full sun and dry to medium soil. Good drainage is very important. Anthemis does not do well in clay soil. Divide every two years.
Propagation:  Sow seed in containers in early spring; divide plants in spring; root cuttings in spring or late summer.
Problems:  Mildew rarely occurs, but plants are slug and aphid prone.
