Question:Can the turfing daisy (Martricia tchihatchewi) be used as a substitute for grass on an acre lawn?
Source of Question:Connecticut
Keywords:TIC Keywords: Matricaria; Recommendations; Seed costs
Answer/Response:The turfing daisy has a place on small areas where grass does not do well, but it would cost too much to use it on an acre basis. Seed is scarce and nurserymen charge $1.00 for 15 plants. Set 15 inches apart each way, about 30,000 plants would be needed for an acre planting. At present prices this would amount to $2,000. If set closer for quicker results the cost would be still higher.
