Description

Height x Spread: 60cm x 60cm

Clouds of small, vivid, violet-blue daisies with bright yellow centres are carried on stout stems with mid green narrow foliage. 'Little Carlow' is widely admired not only for the sheer quantity of flowers it produces, but also the striking blue flowerheads.

Blooms really sing out of an autumn border, catching the eye and combining beautifully with yellows such as Rudbeckia, echoing the colour of its centres. Alternatively, plant it in gentle drifts with grasses and other daisies such as Echinacea and Helenium to get that prairie style.  After flowering you can cut back stems, or leave them until spring.  Bees and butterflies love it. This easy to grow perennial thrives in a fairly fertile, damp soil in part shade, but can tolerate full sun and less moisture, but not very free draining.
