Arctotis Sun Spot Orange ~ Orange African Daisy

Arctotis Sun Spot Orange is one of a series of compace African Daisys. If you cut off the dead flowers Arctotis Sun Spot Orange has a very long blooming cycle. The primary blooming period is late Winter into Spring. Deadheading will extend this period significantly. These African Daisys are drought tolerant, though they do better with a little summer water. And the Arctotis Sun Spot Orange is pretty hardy when temperatures drop into the mid to low 20°s F. Our Winter cold snaps often burn off the flowers in colder coastal and inland locations. 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 gumbletonii, and Arctotis Pink Sugar.
