African Daisy Cape Marigold HEIRLOOM Seeds

Dimorphotheca aurantiaca

Item #1011

Annual. These sunny flowers in tones of orange, yellow, white, and salmon open their petals when hit by the sun to reveal a dark center ringed with purple. The prolific display starts in the mild temperatures of spring in any climate and often continues to frost. In frost-free climates, sow in fall and enjoy their sunny presence from winter through spring. Flowers best during mild temperatures; a great choice for the spring garden. Fairly drought tolerant.
