African Daisy tolerates a wide range of soil types and occupies areas with 20 inches of rainfall a year making it very drought tolerant. Like all South African wild flowers, this beauty is best grown in well-draining soil, not heavy loam or clay. If conditions are right, the African Daisy plant can provide spectacularly colorful blooms, and it is easily established from wild flower seed.

  • African Daisies need full sun and a light dry soil.
  • African Daisy wild flower seed can be sown in spring after frosts.
  • Keep wild flower seed moist until germination.  After estabslihment, they are drought tolerant.
  • Sow the seeds about 4 inches apart in the soil.
  • Add a low nitrogen fertilizer to the African Daisy plant once a month.
  • African Daisies do not transplant well so plant the flower seed where you want them to grow.

African Daisy care:

  • Remove old and spent leaves to prevent fungus infections.
  • When re-potting see that the crown of the plant is above the level of the soil.
  • Generally, African Daisies do not need insecticides or fungicides.
  • If a problem arises treat them with an insecticidal soap and /or fungicide.
  • Mulching is done around but not on top of the plants with 3 inches of organic compost.
  • Water the African Daisy wild flowers well weekly until soil is completely moist.
