What’s Blooming? The African Bush Daisy!

Dec

08

Those friendly yellow daisy-like flowers you see smiling at you every time you are in The Gardens are known as the Bush Daisy. Native to South Africa this flower can tolerate all but the most extreme weather conditions, including moderate drought, and its only kryptonite is winter. But even with the bitter winters we have been having, this flower held strong. Growing anywhere from 3- to 4-feet-tall, these flowers are perennials, meaning they live for more than two years. In the right conditions, which our Gardens provide, the African Bush Daisy offers an explosion of strikingly brilliant yellow flowers that seem to float above their green foliage. In South Florida, they can bloom nearly year-round.
