Argyranthemum (also known as Marguerite, Marguerite Daisy, or Dill Daisy) is native to the Canary Islands. This shrub-like perennial maintains an upright habit with daisy-like blooms all summer long! Your customers may want to choose Argyranthemums for their ability to attract butterflies and other pollinators. Their blooms bouquet much like a Chrysanthemum and are about the size of a half dollar. Argyranthemums can be used in landscaping, flower beds, borders, window boxes, or containers and combination planters. Propagation is prohibited on patented varieties.


Growing Tips

Your unrooted cuttings will arrive freshly cut. You will need to plant them immediately and begin a misting cycle to root the cuttings. This will leech the soil of nutrients, so during the propagation phase use a constant feed of 1/3 the normal recommended dosage of fertilizer until well rooted.

For best results with Argyranthemum, we recommend using a constant feed program of 150-200 ppm N. Maintain a pH between 5.8 - 6.2.

Pinching

Pinching is recommended 5-10 days after transplantation.

Spacing

Can be grown pot tight in an 1801 or 4 inch pot.

Height Control

Pinching is the best way to control height. An initial pinch is recommended, but additional pinching may be necessary to shape your final product.

Pests

Whiteflies, aphids, and thrips are the biggest pest problems with Argyranthemums.

Disease

Dana White are not prone to many diseases, but watch for botrytis while the days are short. This grey rot is usually associated with wet or humid conditions. You can prevent botrytis by allowing the plant to dry out between waterings, allowing for good airflow in your greenhouse, and spacing to allow the sun to penetrate to the soil level. The most common chemicals used to treat botrytis are Medallion and Banrot. Use them as a drench according to each label’s instructions.

Planting Dana White Liners

1. We recommend planting 4-5 starter plants per 10 inch basket. Use a well-drained soil in your baskets and plant your starter plants deep, allowing the ellepot to be completely covered by the soil. If you are planting 4” pots, 1 plant per pot should be sufficient if you have enough time. Plant it directly in the middle of your pot.

 

2. Pinching is recommended 5-10 days after transplantation. A second pinch may be necessary depending on the size and shape of the final pot.

Unrooted Cuttings

Cuttings vary in size between different plant families, but most can be described as tip cuttings (ivy are leaf-and-eye stem cuttings not tips) that stick nicely in small plug trays such as the 105-plug tray we use (some varieties are better suited for a 50 cell tray, i.e. Angelwing Begonia, Bougainvillea, Setcrecea, etc.). Please do not order unrooted cuttings unless you are an experienced propagator with mist systems and proper temperature control.
