General Description

A mounding plant with brown stems that freely branch and sprawl outward, the Surdaisy™ Pink Swan River daisy produces pink to soft, delicate rose blossoms with yellow and green centers. A hybrid tender perennial, it's most often grown as a seasonal bedding annual that's killed by subfreezing temperatures.

A striking oddity for this Swan River daisy selection are the jagged oval leaves of a dark green. New leaves are purplish. The coarse-looking leaves make an effective background for the Easter-worthy daisies with rich pink petals. Deadheading spent flowers encourages production of more flowers a few weeks later.

Surdaisy™ Series Swan River daisies survive in a variety of soil conditions and are drought tolerant, but grow best in non-alkaline, moist, well-drained soil and full sun. Surdaisy™ Pink is particularly nice as an upright but sprawling bedding plant to tuck in between and in front of taller plants. It's a beautiful but intriguing addition to a hanging basket or to spill over the edge of a large container.
