Care & Maintenance: Livingstone Daisy

Ice Plant Mix (Dorotheanthus Bellidiformis Mix) - Start this Ice Plant seed mix and enjoy the brilliant colors in this drought tolerant ground cover plant. Also known as Livingstone Daisy, this showy, trailing plant is frost tender making it an annual in most areas of the United States. Livingstone Daisy Ice Plants are perfect for along the driveway, flowerbed, or mass plantings anywhere in full sun to create a low-growing, blooming  water conserving ground cover.

This mix of Dorotheanthus Bellidiformis seeds produce free-flowering, drought-tolerant, easy-to-care-for plants that thrive in the hot, dry soil that other plants simply will not tolerate. These bright colored daisies typically are 1 1/2 inches across with dozens of long, slender petals jammed around a black eye. They face straight up on plants that just reach 4 - 6 inches tall. You can not find an easier flowering ground cover plant to establish from ground cover seed.

Sow Livingstone Daisy seeds indoors 6 - 8 weeks before the last frost. Or, sow Ice Plant ground cover seeds outdoors after danger of frost has passed. If started indoors, transplant when seedlings are 2 inches tall and space them 12 inches apart. Apply a slow-release fertilizer at the time of transplanting.
