Single Packet of 450 Seeds
Grow a garden filled with African Daisy flowers, from freshly harvested Dimorphotheca sinuata flower seeds. African Daisy will produce gorgeous, 1 inch flowers, atop attractive green foliage. They mature to a height of roughly 8 to 16 inches tall, displaying their blooms in shades of orange, yellow, salmon & white. African daisy is a very drought tolerant plant, which doesn’t require much maintenance once established. They are known to attract an array of bees to the garden, such as honeybees & bumblebees.
African Daisy is categorized as an annual flowering plant, meaning the plants will grow quickly from seed, bloom profusely through the summer months and later die with the first killing frost. They will produce many seeds at the end of the season, which will allow you to regrow the plants the following year. You may also let the seeds fall to the bare ground beneath to reestablish new plants the following Spring.
African Daisy plants can be grown in the garden, in flower beds, along borders and in pots & containers as well. Their low growth habit makes them perfect in raised beds as well, and they can be added with other drought tolerant plant life as well. Check out our Dryland Wildflower mixture for a mixture of all sorts of drought tolerant flowering plants.

Sowing The Seed
African Daisy plants do not transplant well, so we recommend that you sow the seeds directly in the garden when the weather is warm and all danger of frost has passed. Begin by clearing your sowing area of all weeds and other unwanted plant life. Scatter the seeds directly to the surface of the soil, on a calm day. Press the seeds in so that they are firmly in place. You may want to avoid burying your African Daisy seeds, since they require light to properly germinate.
African Daisy plants will thrive in an area that receives full sunlight for the majority of the day. They prefer temperatures of at least 65F, with a soil that is light & dry. Also make sure that the sowing medium is well drained. To increase your drainage, we recommend adding a light compost to any areas that consist of hard, compact soil. Water the seeds daily with a mist setting so that the soil remains moist, until germination has occurred. You can reduce the amount of moisture as the plants age.
Germination & Growth
Your Creeping Daisy seeds will begin to show signs of life within as little as 7 to 10 days, but can take up to 2 weeks to germinate. The plants themselves will reach a mature height of 6 to 12 inches tall, producing pure white petaled blooms, which are accented with a golden-yellow center. The plants can be spaced 8 to 12 inches apart from one another. Creeping Daisy is often used as a groundcover and goes great in flower beds, borders, pots & containers or in a naturalized setting. They will also attract an array of beneficial insects to the garden, such as butterflies, bumblebees, honeybees, hummingbirds & ladybugs as well.
