Electric daisy is traditionally used for treating toothache for generations. The Victorians introduced the plant to the UK and was widely used for medicinal purposes as well as bedding plant. The plant is tender (not hardy), needs full sun and a minimum of 10 C degress but grows very fast. Has yellow popmpom flowers which is the main part to use, makes the mouth numb for a few seconds after tasting.

Plant is in 7 cm pot in bloom between March and October.
