Blackfoot daisy is a tough, mounding plant, that will flourish in rock gardens. It is heat and drought tolerant and flowers from spring until fall. Flowers are white with yellow centers and resemble small daisies. Foliage is linear shaped giving the plant an overall fine textured appearance. It is less than a foot tall and about two feet wide. 

Blackfoot daisy requires good drainage. In late winter/early spring, older plants can be cut back halfway to keep them compact. Can be trimmed as needed when the plant becomes leggy.
