Description

The Trailing Mauve Daisy is one of the delights of an African autumn and winter garden. Plants form soft mounds of mid- to dark green foliage covered in pink to purple flowers from March to September. This daisy species makes an excellent strong-growing groundcover beneath light-canopied trees, to spill over a wall or down a bank. Plants spread rapidly, rooting where stems touch the ground. Flowers open in full sun so remain closed on cloudy days.
