|Sky blue, daisy-like flowers with yellow centers bloom on these bushy, South African natives. Their hairy mounds of dark green foliage thrive in dry pockets of rock gardens, edging, bedding and containers. Flowers on 1- to 2-foot stems tolerate wind and make long-lasting cut flowers. Blooms sometimes close at night and on cloudy days. Some varieties offer flowers in darker blues, lavender and white. Start seed indoors 6 weeks before last frost. In frost-free areas, grow as perennials, elsewhere as annuals. Pick dead flowers to promote more blooms.
This spreading plant is offered as an annual in colder regions. Remove dead flowers to keep it blooming.
