  • water dropWater

    Marguerite daisy should be watered thoroughly whenever the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch. Typically, this would mean watering once or twice a week, depending on climate conditions and the size of the plant. It's crucial to avoid overwatering, as this can lead to root rot. When watering, use enough water to moisten the soil all the way to the roots without leaving the plant standing in water. For an average-sized plant, this might translate to about half a gallon of water per watering session, adjusted based on weather conditions and the plant's growth stage.

  • sunLight

    The Marguerite daisy thrives best in full sun conditions, which means it should receive at least six hours of direct sunlight each day. A spot that provides bright, unfiltered sunshine will encourage the best flowering. It can tolerate partial shade, but flowering may not be as prolific. Ensure that the plant is placed where it can get ample morning sunlight and some protection from the intense heat of the afternoon sun if you're in a very hot climate.

  • thermometerTemperature

    Marguerite daisies prefer moderate temperatures and will flourish in conditions ranging from 65°F to 75°F. They can survive minimum temperatures down to around 40°F, but frost or prolonged exposure to freezing temperatures can be harmful. On the higher end, they can handle temperatures up to about 85°F, but it's essential to provide afternoon shade and additional watering in hotter regions to prevent stress.

  • scissorsPruning

    Pruning Marguerite daisies is important for maintaining a compact shape and encouraging more blooms. Deadheading, or removing spent flowers, should be done regularly to promote continuous blooming throughout the season. Cut back the plant by one-third in early summer to rejuvenate growth and again in early fall if needed. The best time for a more substantial prune is in late winter or early spring, just before new growth starts.

  • bambooSoil

    Marguerite Daisy thrives in a well-drained, fertile soil mix with added organic matter. A blend of two parts peat moss to one part perlite or sand is ideal. Maintain the soil pH between 6.0 and 7.0 for optimal growth of this plant.

  • plantRepotting

    Marguerite Daisies should be repotted every one to two years, or when the roots become visible on the surface or start to overcrowd the container. This encourages healthy growth and blossoming.

  • circleLife cycle

    The Argyranthemum Madeira Deep Pink commonly starts its life as a seed, germinating in the warmth of late winter or early spring. As a seedling, it establishes a modest root system and sprouts its first true leaves, adapting to the local environment and beginning photosynthesis. It then enters a vegetative phase, where the plant grows leaves and stems vigorously, focusing on capturing sunlight and nutrients to build up its structure. Once mature, it transitions to the flowering stage, producing vibrant deep pink daisy-like flowers that attract pollinators and are suitable for cutting. After pollination, it may produce seeds, thereby completing the generational cycle. As a perennial, it can go dormant in the winter, surviving colder months to regenerate and bloom again in the following season.

      Spring to Summer

    • Propogation: The Marguerite daisy, known by the cultivar name Argyranthemum Madeira Deep Pink 'Bonmadepi' (PBR), is most commonly propagated through cuttings. The optimal time for taking cuttings is during the late spring or early summer when the plant is actively growing. To propagate, a gardener would cut a 3 to 5-inch (approximately 7.6 to 12.7 cm) section of a non-flowering shoot, ensuring that at least two sets of leaves are present. The lower leaves are removed, and the cut end is dipped into a rooting hormone to encourage root development. This is then planted into a moist potting mix and kept under conditions of high humidity and indirect sunlight until roots have established, after which it can be transplanted.
