I'm sorry your plant was damaged.
I do think the plant will send out new shoots and fill in, I'm basing this on the growth that I'm familiar with on Marguerite Daisy plants.

Q. marguerite plants

This plant suddenly appeared in my garden last year. It had beautiful leaves and white daisy flowers. I didn’t know what to do over winter, so I did nothing. This year, it quadrupled in size and I was thrilled and anxiously waiting for the flowers. However, no flowers appeared. The foliage is gorgeous — but no flowers. What did I do wrong?? How can I get it to flower again?

Depending on your growing zone, you may have Marguerite Daisy, or Shasta Daisy plants.

Lack of flowers could be an excess of nitrogen in the soil. Don't over fertilize your plants.
You can do a soil test to verify the soil nutrients.
Adding some organic Bone Meal for a phosphorous boost can help with flower production.
Here are some links with more information.

Q. marguerite daisies

They did beautifully in large containers. I used containers so I could keep them in sunny spot. Is it possible to keep the roots in containers over the winter?

Certainly, I would either give them a protective area to winter over in, such a garage or shed.

Q. Dying Marguerite buds

My Marguerite daisy blooms are dying before they bloom or shriveling up. They were doing well till a week ago. I live in AZ so the danger of frost is gone.

This sounds like a problem of sucking insects like thrips, aphids or mites. These can be very hard to see. They prefer new growth and. flower buds. Take a good close look. Here is an article that might help. https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/flowers/marguerite-daisies/marguerite-daisy-flowers.htm

We do not sell plants. We only offer information regarding their care. I would contact your local nurseries, or search online. Many online nurseries will ship just about anywhere. Just add the words "for sale" to your search and many online nursery results will show up.

We do not sell plants or give specific seller recommendations.

Do a search for Molimba Pink Marguerite Daisy. You should be able to locate a plant!

Q. Pinching Out

How should I pinch out newly planted Argyranthemums?

Is this for controlling height, or is this for removing plants that are planted too close together? Can you include a photo, and describe what the pinching will be used to achieve? This will help me to give you better advice on doing what you want the proper way.

Q. Pinching out

I asked earlier about pinching out Argyranthemums and was asked to supply a photo. I`m afraid I can`t do that. I asked because I purchased a dozen plug plants which are at the moment still in the “potting on” stage due to UK climate. They are approximately 4″ tall and I would like to know what pinching out is advisable to produce the height and spread described on various web sites.
Regards……….stan the man.

Trimming off dead flowers after they fade helps keep argyranthemum looking its best and producing more flowers.
When the plants are producing lots of vegetative growth, it is worth tip pruning to produce a more compact, bushy plant.
