Arctotis hybrid 'Hearts & Tarts™'

African Daisy

Ground covers, Flowers

ARCTOTIS

The name “African daisy“ can refer to any of several plants from southern Africa, and identities are often confused, even by many seed companies and nurseries. Arctotis species have lobed leaves that are rough, hairy, or woolly; their flower heads usually have a contrasting ring of color around the central eye. Dimorphotheca species (commonly used for mass color in winter) have smooth green foliage, blooms that are white or in the yellow–orange–salmon range. Trailing ground cover African daisies and woody, shrubby white,yellow, or purple African daisies are Osteospermum.

In cold-winter areas, set out annuals (or perennials that are grown as annuals) in spring for summer bloom. Where winters are mild, plant in fall or winter for bloom from spring into early summer. These plants suffer in extreme heat and humidity.
