South African Daisies
Brilliant South African daisies are so tough they thrive even on neglected nature strips. It’s available in a range of bright or pastel colours, some with smooth petals, others dipped or spoon-shaped.
What: a brilliant South African daisy so tough it thrives even on neglected nature strips. It’s available in a range of bright or pastel colours, some with smooth petals, others dipped or spoon-shaped. Whatever the look, the constant is lots of flowers!
Why: tons of flowers from early spring to late autumn
How big: most varieties grow 50-60cms.
Where: heat is no problem, and neither is dry, but don’t let their roots stay soggy.
What else: plan a trip to Namaqualand to see carpets of these daisies kilometres wide!
We like them with:
Pretty in a ball basket crammed with hot-coloured petunia, lantana, and helichrysum.
