Yes, this is an untouched photo -- Whoops-a-Daisy really does grow into a flower-filled dome that will bring cries of admiration and double takes from all who survey it! An improved version of the old favorite 'Snowcap,' Whoops-a-Daisy thrives in large containers as well as sunny garden spots, blooming so heavily you can scarcely see the foliage!

Expect to see hundreds of these 3- to 4-inch daisies over a long summer season. They have between 2 and 3 rows of tightly-packed, slender white petals each, all surrounding a yellow center. Long-lasting in garden or vase, they brighten all neighboring plants beautifully, making colors really pop. And they are also handsome enough to show off all on their own, of course, simply covering the plant!

Expect Whoops-a-Daisy to reach 12 to 18 inches high and up to 24 inches wide. It is a summer bloomer, and needs no attention beyond good soil drainage, plenty of sunshine, and the occasional feeding of compost or other nutrient mix. Divide the plants every 2 to 3 years, and soon you will have a thriving colony of nonstop summer beauty!

Whoops-a-Daisy stands up well to heat and drought, and is generally left alone by nibbling deer, rabbits, and other creatures. The foliage is glossy, leathery, and very dark green. Showy from spring until hard frost, it's a perennial no garden or patio pot should be without! Zones 5-9.
