Swan River Purple Daisy

Pretty little violet, blue, or white star like flowers combined with ferny, green foliage are what make Swan River daisy so popular. It’s a top pick for spilling a little of the way over the sides of container plantings and hanging baskets. Or use it in the front of flower beds and borders.
This cool-season annual does best when planted in spring a few weeks before your region’s last frost date. It needs rich, moist, but well-drained soil. Deadhead to prolong bloom. When summer’s heat hits, shear plants back by about half to rejuvenate them and encourage fall bloom. Swan River daisy’s lacy foliage and small but profuse blue-purple flowers have a long season of impact in the garden. Its compact, bushy shape, pretty fragrant flowers, and gray-green leaves make it attractive from planting time through frost. It flowers so heavily that the foliage is often obscured. ‘Blue Zephyr’ has especially fine foliage and only reaches about a foot high. It is excellent in hanging baskets, window boxes, or other containers, or at the front of a bed or border.
A star choice for your patio tubs, baskets and borders, this bushy variety will produce its fragrant lavender-blue flowers in profusion throughout the whole summer. Easy to grow, colourful daisies from South Africa. Swan River Daisy is an annual flower that is variable in nature, with blue, pink, white and purple flowers centered with either yellow or black. The Swan River daisy forms a loose mound up to 18 inches tall with equal spread. A plant with numerous branches, it holds its one-inch flowers upright on slender stems.
