'Sunshine Daydream' was found as a branch sport of 'Capenoch Star'. This selection has fully double blooms with petals that re-curve toward the stem. 'Capenoch Star' has small, true sunflower-like blooms. This selection has also been compared to 'Flore Pleno'. 'Sunshine Daydream' has fully rounded, dahlia-like blooms that are smaller in diameter, but much more numerous in quantity. In comparison to 'Loddon's Gold', the blooms of 'Sunshine Daydream' have a much more pincushion or dome-like appearance and a more uniform shape. This selection is also the most golden-yellow of the three.
