African Daisy Salmon

African Daisy (Dimorphotheca Sinuata Salmon) - The flower color is called salmon, but it also has shades of apricot. These beautiful flowers are open by day and close at night. They are spreading plants which thrive in hot, dry areas, making this a western favorite. They grow easily from flower seeds, and they are excellent as a border or ground cover. Plant this flower seed in early spring in containers if you plan on transplanting (late fall or early winter in mildest climates). If you desire to plant African Daisy seeds directly outdoors, sow seeds directly on the ground in mid spring when the climate has warmed up and the threat of frost has passed.
