zones 5 to 10

mid summer to early fall

Flower:

shade of yellow, orange, gold and mahogany daisy-shaped flowers; single or double blossoms

Foliage:

green leaves on erect, sturdy stems

Propagation:

Suggested Use:

cut flowers, beds, borders, and country gardens

Growing Hints:

Sow seeds directly into the garden in the spring two weeks before the last frost date, or start seeds indoors several weeks before the last spring frost date. Don't cover seeds with soil as they need light to germinate, just press seeds lightly into the surface of the soil. Space plants 12 to 14 inches apart. Mature plants readily reseed themselves and seedlings are easy to transplant.

Interesting Facts:

A strain of Black-Eyed-Susan developed in the U.S., Gloriosa Daisies are prolific bloomers and often bloom themselves to death after only a season or two. Start each year with new plants or let flowers self-sow seedlings for the following spring.

These gloriosa daisies are 3 feet high and began blooming early in June and are still in full bloom. Gloriosas bloom all summer and love the sun to part shade. I called this photo Independence Day Gloriosa Daisies, since decorations are up for the 4th of July.
