Our Master Gardeners Suggest Pairing With:
These brilliant orange or yellow daisies remind many people of the famous tropical Gerbera, so popular in the cutflower trade. With their world-renowned South African companion wildflowers (such as the flashy gazania and others), these plants create riotous color in their native range. All the South Africans are famous for “waiting for the water”, so don’t water your African Daisies too much.

*This species is identical to D. aurantiaca.

    Comments about American Meadows African Daisy Seeds:

    I live in the northwest and have a major problem with deer eating the flowers. I desire color, outside the evergreen trees that are every where. I received these along with other wild seeds a couple years ago. Of course, by the end of the season the deer and rabbits have eaten most of the garden. But to my joyful surprise, they didn't touch the African daisey. They bloom most of the summer. I like the fact, they do not take over a area and grow short, maybe a foot high! My black eyed Susans were munched up upon blooming, leaving me nothing but stems. The Africian daisey though not as tall nor as large - went untouched. This spring, African daisey's have been planted every where. I am planning on planting them in the southwest, our 2nd residence and see how they do in the desert heat. Should be good, coming from Africa, I will let you know. No deer there ... but the splash of color is just what I am looking for.
