African daises like ‘Soprano’ are better for pressing than very full daises. Layer the flowers between sheets of blotting paper and flatten them under books or bricks for a week or two, or dry them in a box filled with desiccant. Use your pressed daises in crafts or frames; dried daises that retain their shape are pretty in floral arrangements or wreaths.

Ox Eye daisies provide a soft texture and vibrant white flower against a garden with strong stone features. The use of native plants in the large planting beds help to create separation amongst the architectural features of the garden.
Purple coneflower, daisies, foxglove, black-eyed Susans, astilbe and hollyhocks fill this garden. "More than half the plants were split from perennials in other areas of my garden," says the homeowner, "and this turned out to be my favorite bed."
