Montanoa atriplicifolia

Daisy Vine, Daisy Tree
Family: Asteraceae
Origin: Central America, Mexico
USDA Zone: 9-11?
USDA Plant Hardiness MapLarge shrub 5-10 ft tallSemi-shadeFull sunRegular waterWhite, off-white flowersFragrant plantSubtropical or temperate zone plant. Mature plant cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

A rare Winter-blooming Tree Daisy that offers up masses of fragrant, 2-3" white daisy flowers from October thru February. Hailing from Mexico down to South America, this cloud forest tree is more of a shrubby vine in lower elevations. Lightly toothed, 3-5" green leaves that provide a verdant backdrop for the shower of Winter flowers, so profuse they entirely envelope the plant! Some say they smell like vanilla, some say cupcakes - either way, yum! Flowers are followed by multi-faceted, lime-green seedpods that are nearly as decorative as the blooms. Plant in sun to light shade in fertile well-drained soil. It will appreciate regular watering, less in the Winter as temperatures cool. Cut back after flowering to encourage healthy new growth. Mulch roots to protect from frost.
