Quick Overview:

Nippon or Montauk daisy plants are hardy in zones 5-9. They bear white daisies from midsummer to frost. Their foliage is thick, dark green and succulent. Montauk daisies can hold up under light frost, but the plant will die back with the first hard freeze. They attract pollinators to the garden, but are deer and rabbit resistant. Montauk daisies are also salt and drought tolerant.

Description
