Lovely original African daisy forming a carpet of silvery green leaves, and producing white and yellow flowers that sit up to the sun. Good fast-growing ground cover, forming a mass of pretty flowers in mid-summer in the UK. Plants tolerate pots, dry banks and coastal gardens.
Silver Arctotis can be grown as a perennial or an annual, flowering in the first year. If grown as a perennial, the plants need to be protected with a thick mulch and generally re-sprout after frosting. Plants prefer full sun and attract butterflies and bees.
Prefers well drained soil and a sunny spot, and will grow well in coastal sites, tolerating salt spray.
