hi georgia rose. I am wanting some white daisies, my friend and I have looked all spring/summer for them. Someone gave me some years ago. When do these come out? And are they in seed form? TIA for any info .

RE: Yellow Daisy Festival & Flower Show

Sorry, but I don't grow Daisies. Have never had an interest in them, but once had a neighbor that loved Gerberas and had plants all around in her garden. I haven't noticed any
white flowered ones available this year, at any of the nurseries I frequent. Your best bet would probably be ordering seed and grow your own or go to the Seed Exchange Forum and list your wants. If you have no seed to trade, you can often find someone that will send seed for a SASE.

The Oxeye Daisy is an introduced species and can sometimes be found in scattered locations across N GA.

Good luck!
