The African Daisy colors are in shades of white, orange, yellow and apricot.

African Daisy tolerates a wide range of soil types and occupies areas with 500 to 1500 mm annual rainfall. Like all South African wild flowers, this beauty is best grown in well-draining soil, not heavy loam or clay. If conditions are right, the African Daisy plant can provide spectacularly colorful blooms, and it is easily established from seed. Direct sow or in deep containers.

The African Daisy flowers are 1 - 1/2 inch wide flowers, which close at night, in the shade, and during cloud cover. They are known for attracting butterflies and bees to gardens. Beautiful results can come from directly sowing African Daisy seeds directly into prepared areas.
