Arctotis gumbletonii ~ Gumbleton African Daisy

Arctotis gumbletonii is one of the spectacular African Daisys. If you cut off the dead flowers Arctotis gumbletonii has a very long blooming cycle. The primary blooming period is late Winter into early Spring. Deadheading will extend this period significantly. These African Daisys are drought tolerant, though they do better with a little summer water they can handle a pretty dry hot season but it leaves them looking pretty scrappy. Arctotis gumbletonii is Winter hardy into the mid 20°'s. Arctotis will bloom better in the full sun but will put on a reasonable amount of color even in a lightly shaded planter. Other African Daisies from our list include Arctotis acaulis Torch Purple, Arctotis Pink Sugar, and Arctotis Sun Spot Orange.
