LIVINGSTONE DAISY - Dorotheanthus Bellidiformis

Ice Plant Mix (Dorotheanthus Bellidiformis Mix) - Start this Ice Plant seed mix and enjoy the brilliant colors in this ground cover plant. Also known as Livingstone Daisy. This mix of Dorotheanthus Bellidiformis seeds produce free-flowering, drought-tolerant, easy-to-care-for plants that thrive in the hot, dry soil that other plants simply will not tolerate. These bright colored daisies typically are 4cm (1 1/2 inches) across with dozens of long, slender petals jammed around a black eye. They face straight up on plants that just reach 10 - 15cm (4 - 6 inches) tall. You can not find an easier flowering ground cover plant to establish from ground cover seed.
