Daisy like white, yellow and orange flowers will make any garden and composition attractive!
Venidium fastuosum, commonly known as the cape daisy, is an ornamental plant native to South Africa and initially grown from seeds. Cape daisy blooms from July to October, including white, yellow and orange.
The plant can be grown as a perennial in hardiness zones 10 and 11, but is only hardy as an annual in zones 3 through 9.
Water the plants frequently while the seeds are germinating and during cool weather. During the summer, allow the soil to dry between watering.
Fertilize lightly using a formula that will maintain a soil pH between 6.0 and 7.0. Cape daisy prefers a soil range between somewhat acidic to neutral.
Stake the plant with a firm stick, such as bamboo, once it matures.
