Cape Daisy

The 16 to 24-inch tall plants are covered with unusual daisy like 3-inch blooms which are white on the outside edge of the petals. Moving toward the center there is a ring of purple, then a ring of orange, with an almost black focal point. Foliage is a lovely soft gray-green and tends to spread out.
