'Cherry Brandy' is a welcome and stunning departure from the classic orange yellow daisy with a dark brown centre. This floriferous selection bears a profusion of cherry red to deep burgundy blooms from early summer until frost. Although it is a short lived perennial to biennial, it will re-seed, and return in subsequent years, and makes a rugged, deer proof addition to any sunny border.
