General Description

Swan River daisy is an herbaceous, bushy and spreading annual that is native to western and southern Australia. The selection 'Bravo Deep Blue with Black Center' has downy-soft gray-green leaves with a showy display of fragrant blue-purple flowers all summer long with black eyes in the middle of the daisies. Being compact plants, they have particular favor for use in hanging baskets.

Swan River daisy can survive in a variety of soil conditions and is drought tolerant, but requires well drained soil and full sun. Pinch back plants throughout the growing season for fresh flushes of new blossoms. This plant is perfect as a bedding plant, edging, mixed border member or as part of a container or seasonal hanging basket.
