A low-growing Australian native annual daisy that provides a spectacular burst of colour through spring, attracting bees and butterflies. It has branched stems and highly-divided leaves and daisy flowers. It is a popular and easily-grown garden plant for bedding, courtyards, playgrounds, flower gardens, borders, rockeries, pots and hanging baskets.

Swan River Daisies are found in the wild in WA, SA and southern NT in a variety of habitats: in sandy or clay soils, on sand hills and plains, along watercourses, on swampy ground, on chalky hills and among granite outcrops. They are moderately frost-hardy and can be grown easily in most areas of Australia.

In the wild the Swan River Daisies usually flowers in late winter and spring but, in cultivation, it commonly flowers in spring and summer and intermittently at other times of the year. If sown in spring, flowering may extend into summer and autumn.

Plant the seeds in Autumn and keep the plants growing through Winter in warmer climates as this will bring a better display in spring. Trim off the spent flowers after the first spring flush to encourage repeat flowering in late spring and summer. Feed generously with a good fertilizer like Seasol to get the plants to reach their full flowering potential.

Growing Notes:

Commercial seeds germinate quickly, within 2 to 12 days and often within 2 to 4 days. Cuttings will strike quickly but may result in less vigorous growth. They should be planted in full sun in clay or sandy soils but they will tolerate shade and, if sown directly under trees, will form a natural carpet. Sowing should be done in May or June in coastal areas and, in colder areas, they are best sown in peat pots or seedling flats in June or July. In areas subject to frost, germination success can be improved by sowing after frosts have passed.

They respond well to watering and fertilizing, although an initial treatment with a liquid fertilizer, such as Seasol, should be sufficient in most cases. Once established, plants may be picked out to 20cm centres. Spent plants may be cut back, however, plants commonly regenerate naturally from seed, even in containers and hanging baskets. Note that they are prone to attack by powdery mildew.
