African Daisy - Aurantiaca Hybrid (Seeds)
Pretty, single daisy-like flowers in shades of orange, buff and yellow are held above fuzzy, silver grey foliage. They are often used as a ground cover or in the annual border. A prolific bloomer once flowering starts. Plants grow to about 45 cm (18″) in height.
How to Grow
150 seed/gram. Directly sow outdoors in a sunny spot in early May. Sow seed 6 mm (1/4″) deep, then thin to 30 cm (12″) apart when the plants reach 5-8 cm (2-3″) in height. Seed can also be started indoors 8 weeks before planting out. Germination is quick, occurring in 5-10 days at a temperature of 21 C (70 F). Grow on at 13-16 C (55-60 F). Pinch out growing points on young plants to stimulate bushy growth. Harden off plants then transplant outside after the danger of frost has passed. A good plant for sunny, dry areas.
