Argyranthemum [marguerite, marguerite daisy, dill daisy] is a genus of flowering plants belonging to the family Asteraceae. Members of this genus are sometimes also placed in the genus Chrysanthemum.
The genus is endemic to Macaronesia, occurring only on the Canary Islands, the Savage Islands, and Madeira.
Argyranthemum frutescens is recorded as a food plant of the leaf-mining larva of the moth Bucculatrix chrysanthemella.
Varieties and cultivars of Argyranthemum [sometimes listed under A. frutescens] are widely sold as garden plants, for summer bedding or containers.
They produce prolific single- or double-flowered daisy-like flowers in shades of white, pink, yellow and purple.
