Plant Care Nipponanthemum


About Nipponanthemum

Nipponanthemum nipponicum is a plant species native to coastal regions of Japan but cultivated as an ornamental in other regions. This perennial tolerates light shade in hot climates. Nippon daisies tend to lose their lower leaves, so it is helpful to plant smaller perennials in front to cover up their leafless lower stems.
