How to Grow African Daisy Annual Flowers

Annuals

African Daisies are attractive flowers, that grow well in dry, arid areas where other flowering plants struggle to grow. These low spreading plants bloom profusely all summer long.

African Daisies colors include white, orange, yellow and apricot. Mixed colors in a flowerbed look especially attractive. The plants begin to produce a continuous display of blooms in mid-summer.

Propagation:

Grow African daisies from seed. They are fast growing, and are best directly seeded into your flower garden. Direct sow seeds outdoors in early to mid spring. African daisy are susceptible to frost.

Sow seeds and cover lightly with soil. Water thoroughly.

Seeds from the flower head will fall to the ground in the fall and reseed your flower bed.

How to Grow African Daisies:

African Daisies grow well in full sun. They will do well in average soils, and are very drought tolerant in dry conditions.

Space plants ten inches apart. They will tolerate a little crowding.

Water them during prolonged droughts. Otherwise, little additional water is need.

Add a general purpose fertilizer once a month.

Keep plants well-weeded, for an attractive appearance, and to keep weeds from robbing water and nutrients. Add a layer of mulch around the plants.

Once your African Daisies are established, they will quickly grow and bloom in about two months. By mid-summer, you should see a continuous bloom up to the first frost in the fall.

Remove spent blooms to keep the plants looking attractive.

Insect and Disease:

African daisies are seldom bothered by insects or disease. Plant disease can occur in wet, humid weather. Treat with insecticides and fungicide, only if needed.
