Flower Portrait

‘Sputnik’ is a short-lived perennial, usually grown as an annual, to 45cm in height with bristly stems and lance-shaped leaves. The classic daisy flowerheads have bicoloured ray florets, each with a brown base and middle changing to yellow at their tips, clustered around a dark-brown cone of disc florets. Flowerheads appear from mid to late summer. Perfect for ‘hot’ themed borders, they also mix well with ornamental grasses in a prairie-style planting scheme.
