Robust, well branched plants with flowers almost year round. The petals blend pink, apricot and purple changing as they age. The Margarita Series have a uniform, spreading habit.
Robust, well branched cultivars. These African Daisies will quickly grow to form handsome, heat and frost tolerant, rounded sub shrubs that are adorned with flowers from early spring to frost. Their compact habit lends well in pots and sunny borders, providing a nice pop of reliable, easy colour where you need it.
Unlike the old fashioned varieties, these modern African Daisies stay open night and day. They also have a better shade tolerance and all round strength.
If you cut African Daisy plants black late summer and add some fertiliser they can go on to produce second flush of flowers that will easily last into autumn. Alternatively dead head regularly for a never ending show.
Plant in a sunny spot with moderately fertile to humus rich, well drained soil for best results. 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 or for as long.
In pots, if you want them to bloom really well, add a weekly dose of diluted liquid fertiliser and they will go nuts!
