Brilliant purple, twisted, fluted petals with a large blue disc. Great for combination planting in containers.
Unlike the old fashioned varieties, these modern African Daisies stay open night and day. They also have a better shade tolerance, excellent branching and all round vigour.

Robust, well branched cultivars, these African Daisies will grow to form handsome, rounded sub shrubs adorned 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. They are dry tolerant, long blooming and so simple to care for.

Cut African Daisy plants black late summer and add some fertiliser to produce second flush of flowers that will last into autumn.

Plant these evergreen perennials 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. If you want them to bloom really well, add a weekly dose of diluted liquid fertiliser and they will go nuts! A great choice for stopping erosion on slopes.
