|Rich tones bloom coral, gold, primrose and cream on this narrow-petaled, most elegant of Daisies. A favorite of gardeners and florists alike, they are perfect plants for the summer cutting garden. Like excellent drainage, deep watering between dry periods and fertilizer. Double-flowering types available. Buy plants or divide large clumps. Difficult from seed. If you try, barely cover the seeds with soil as they need light to germinate. In cold winter areas, bring pots inside for winter color. Watch for snails and slugs.
In mild winter areas, these South African natives bloom several times each year, especially in early summer and late fall.
