Gardening in South Africa

A grouping of Felicia will always catch the eye in the garden.

alt Felicia amelloides. Picture courtesy www.newplant.co.zaFelicia amelloides. Picture courtesy www.newplant.co.zaBlue is a sought after colour amongst gardeners because it is quite rare, especially a true blue shade. Kingfisher Daisies, with their masses of striking sky-blue and sunny yellow flower heads fit the bill, catching the eye wherever they are planted. There are approximately 84 species of Felicia, and South Africa is blessed with about 79. This little plant did not go un-noticed and was one of the earliest species used in horticulture, first being introduced to Europe in the middle of the eighteenth century; it also features on one of our stamps. Sky-blue, pale blue, violet-blue, pink and white flowered forms are available, as well as a variegated variety and a beautiful annual which is entirely blue.
