Native butterflies like native plants, but seaside daisy is special. It has such a long flowering season that, as long
as your winters aren't too cold, it can provide a nectar source even in the dead of winter. Seaside daisy also works great for attracting pollinators to your vegetable garden. Use it in between vegetable beds and more drought-tolerant landscaping to increase your vegetable yields.
Where to Find Seaside Daisy
There are many seaside daisy cultivars and hybrids available at nurseries that carry California native plants. For a very compact and tidy form, look for a hybrid called 'Wayne Roderick.' It has glossy foliage and delicate purple flowers. For a tougher and more drought-tolerant variety, try 'Cape Sebastian.'
