Deep purple petals with a nice hint of blue. African Daisy 3D Series have double flowers with two different tones and prominent centres. Unlike the regular varieties they stay open night and day. They also have a better shade tolerance than most African Daisies.
Vigorous, well branched cultivars, African Daisies grow to form rounded sub shrubs with flowers from spring to autumn. Their compact habit lends well in pots and sunny borders, providing a nice pop of reliable colour where you need it.
Cut African Daisy plants black late summer and add some fertiliser for a second flush of flowers.
Plant African Daisies in moderately fertile to humus rich, well drained soil for best results. Choose a sunny garden location. Water to establish, then keep moist during flowering to keep them blooming at their best. They will cope with dry conditions but will not flower as well. The longer they have to establish, the less water they will need. If you want them to really bloom well, add a weekly dose of fertiliser and they will go nuts!
