Gloriosa Daisies

It's easy to see why these gloriosa daisies are so popular. They put on a spectacular display of color in the garden. This particular strain came from Elle. I almost lost them because I had them in Ed's vegetable garden and most of the small plants got weeded out. This plant is usually a biennial so the small plants from last year must be left to bloom the next year.

For whatever reason, Ed's super soil ,or the weird weather caused these to bloom the first year. They are a bright spot in the garden and bloom for a long time, You can start them from seed or buy a plant at a nursery. They look their very best in the evening just before sunset when they glow with color.
