The humble English Daisy never looked so good! This stunning bicolor is fully double, jammed with needle-thin, swirled petals, and larger than other Bellis. Resembling a sea anemone or exhibition-quality Dahlia, it is a nice way to dress up early spring in containers or the garden!
Habanera Red Tips’s blooms measure 2 inches across and appear even larger, for the central petals stand straight up in a tight red spiral. They completely hide the foliage on this neat, compact plant, which grows 6-8 inches high and 6 inches wide in partial shade. A fine choice for baskets, windowboxes, and patio containers, Habanera Red Tips also works well in the garden, nestled among the spring bulbs and early bloomers such as Sweet Alyssum and Columbine.
In the south, you can even grow it as a cool-season annual, where it will bloom through winter among the Snaps and Pansies!
English Daisies are not difficult to grow, provided you do NOT cover the seeds at germination. They thrive in climates where nights are cold and summers are mild. Plant in partial shade and moist, well-drained soil. Pkt is 50 seeds. Zones 4-8.
