Flowerheads up to 6.5cm across with numerous white ray florets, flushed purplish pink at the tip and base, becoming pink with age. Tends to be pinker in cool conditions. Very free flowering. Spreading, subshrubby habit, greyish green foliage.
Well drained soil in full sun. More of less half-hardy and needs a warm position, but this is one of the hardier varieties and a robust grower.
From cuttings, normally rooting easily.
