Daisy – African Mix


The African Daisy is native to South Africa, and it is often referred to as a Cape Marigold.  Originating from the South African region has led this flower to flourish when planted in full sun.  However, it does not like hot weather that is accompanied by humidity.  The higher level of humidity the African Daisy is exposed to, the more copious its foliage will be, and the fewer flowers will bloom.  The only humidity it will tolerate comes in combination with cooler climates.  The African Daisy prefers hot, dry weather similar to where it originated.  This flower is highly drought tolerant but needs well-drained soil.  It can be started indoors and deadheading it will often prolong blooming.  The blooms on the flower will close when they are beneath a shaded area and after dusk.  The African Daisy is a good winter annual when planted in zones 10-13 and a good spring/summer annual when planting is done in zones 8-10.  This plant will not survive frost and may only reseed itself if the seed drops on bare ground.  A unique fact about African Daisy is it produces 2 different seeds and both types of seed generate the same plant and spread the diversity of its colors.

This seed is sold as ‘stick’ or ‘flake’.
