LATIN NAME

Dimorphotheca Sinuata

African Daisy (Dimorphotheca Sinuata Yellow) - African Daisy is also known as the Cape Marigold.

The  plant is excellent for naturalized areas and as ground cover for large areas, for parking strips, borders, large pots and tubs. The flowers are 1-1/2 inch wide flowers, which close at night, in the shade, and during cloud cover. The flower colors are available in shades of white, orange, yellow and salmon.

Sow seeds directly outdoors in early spring after frost season is completely over. Keep the flower seeds moist until germination. To prolong blooming, remove faded flowers.
