    I pour my left over bottled water on them not strong light from window or direct sun if out doors

  • Mia Irby

    Awesome...thanks for your help! Definitely going to give these a go. I'm usually pretty terrible with keeping indoor plants alive, so hopefully these are low maintenance and flourish from lack of care?!

  • Kay Cox

Adding yarrow to your garden gives it a great "wildflower" feel. Learn more about yarrow here:

  • Lise W

    Not yarrow! Yeah give it the wildflower feeling but leave the yarrow at the garden center. Took me three years to get rid of the plants!

  • Marty Petersen

    Don't you wish they would put warning labels on plants like these!!

  • Mel Crawf

    So funny that yarrow is invasive for some; I can barely keep it alive in my Chicago clay. :)

    I live in the northwest, no problem for me!

No longer in the garden, but I loved it. Blackfoot daisy is a sturdy, mounding plant, that will flourish in rock gardens. It is heat and drought tolerant. Good drainage is essential to its success. In late winter, older plants can be cut back halfway to keep them compact. Rich soil and abundant water will likely produce many more flowers in the short-term, but may consequently shorten the lifespan.

Place plants with contrasting colors -- hot purples and pinks versus pastel oranges -- in separate areas of a garden. To draw Birds, offer a moving source of water, such as this pretty birdbath. Lovely collection of plants adds beauty to a yard.
