Characteristics of African Daisy: African Daisies boast an array of captivating features, including:

Growing African Daisies: Here are some essential tips for cultivating African Daisies:

  1. Sunlight: Plant African Daisies in a location with full sunlight for optimal growth and blooming.

  2. Well-drained Soil: Ensure the soil is well-drained to prevent waterlogging, which can lead to root rot. Sandy or loamy soil with good drainage is ideal.

  3. Watering: While African Daisies are drought-tolerant once established, regular watering is necessary during the initial growth phase. Water deeply but infrequently to encourage deep root development.

  4. Pruning: Deadhead spent flowers regularly to promote continuous blooming and maintain a neat appearance.
