Robust, well branched plants with flowers almost year round. The petals blend pink, apricot and purple changing as they age.
Unlike the regular varieties these modern African Daisies stay open night and day. They also have a better shade tolerance.
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, easy colour where you need it.
Cut African Daisy plants black late summer and add some fertiliser to produce second flush of flowers into autumn.
Plant 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 diluted liquid fertiliser and they will go nuts!
