When it's good, it's very very good, but when it's bad, it's horrid! This is a perfect description of Chrysactinia mexicana, or Damianita Daisy. There is a lot to like about this evergreen shrub, but a lot to dislike too. It can flower year-round, but it looks its very best right now when the flowers are profuse. It has a wonderful,sharp scent that I really like.
It flowers in cycles, and when not in flower, its bad side shows. The shrub is woody, and can have ugly gaps in the needle-like foliage. It just looks horrid. Another problem is the tiny seedlings that sprout all over my garden every spring. I didn't realize how easily it self-seeds. This shrub reaches a height of two feet and can spread over three feet. The larger it gets, the more beautiful it is when flowering, but the opposite is true. The larger it is, the uglier the gaps!
