Plant Families / Arctotis - African Daisies
Native to South Africa, Arctotis (African Daisies) are showy tender perennials exhibiting brightly colored daisy-like flowers, up to 3 in. wide (8 cm), contrasting with their black or yellow center disks and their beautiful, finely cut, silvery-green foliage. Available in a wide array of colors such as red, yellow, pink, purple and white, most of those grown in our gardens are hybrids resulting from a cross between Arctotis Fastuosa and Arctotis Venusta. Resilient to pests and diseases, they are great candidates for borders, rock gardens or for containers.
