Serious bang for the buck! Floriferous, fast & easy it’s amazing this South African annual isn’t more popular in the trade & with garden designers. Quickly growing to 15” tall & wide, it explodes into a mass of sunny, golden blooms that last for months. With a rich, shiny maroon ring encircling the central golden eye, the 2.5” flowers are eye-fetching held atop the rich green mound of ferny foliage. Combine this high performance annual with gentian blue Anagallis monellii for striking color contrast. Heat & drought tolerant once established, Ursinia anthemoides will easily self-sow for many return engagements. Here in USDA Zone 10 it can be planted at any time of the year (blooming shortly thereafter) & makes a good Winter bloomer too. Excellent in a container too - at least 10” across. Rich, well-drained soil for best show.
