Q: Is there actually a Confederate yellow daisy available for home gardens? I think it would be neat to have them bloom at home at the time of Stone Mountain Yellow Daisy Festival.
A: You’re in luck! The Confederate yellow daisy is a reseeding annual. It is found naturally within a 60 mile radius of Stone Mountain. The Georgia Native Plant Society will have them available at their fall plant sale and again at the spring sale.
It is best to place the pots where one would like them to grow and let them seed from the pots. Once established, they will reseed easily. Plants are a bit finicky to transplant and this needs to be done while still young. They require full sun to semi-shade and dry conditions.
