That's what I thought initially then I knew that plants can come with latin names.

Perennial or annual?

I just know I'll keep calling them "Osteoporosis-mum"

These are really awesome plants, ours flowered from May until November last year... I thought they were perennial but ours died when the soil got really wet last winter, they don't do soggy apparently... Slugs love 'em too.

Made me think of sperm for some reason.


Perennial or annual



There are perennial varities...the old cottage garden favorite is the very hardy purple one
It's that easy to transplant a bit with a few roots on planted and watered... establishes very quickly
Prefers a well drained soil and a sunny spot

Jeez, what a beautiful mind

just call them by their common name - African Daisy

I have a small border under my front window that gets lots of afternoon sun, but because its quite sheltered not much water and the soil isn't great condition.

Would these be a good option and would it be a good idea to take some old soil out and dig in a growbag before putting them in?

Any issues with them being right next to the house?

I think you've got the perfect conditions for these plants, definitely dig in a growbag first and be generous with the slug pellets after you've planted them!
Ours were in a sunny rockery which is next to the house, it's well drained (usually) and south facing.

I love these. They are probably my favourite flower.

Whut?

hot deal

Thanks again to the OP. I popped to Lidl first thing and they had a tall shelved cage full of them. I grabbed 12 in total but looked like I was the first to get stuck in. This seems a great deal and will brighten up my garden quickly.

heat added got myself 3 today and already planted

Thanks OP. Bought 12 this morning and they're looking good in my borders and pots. Yellow, pink and white available.

**You need drought tolerant type perennials. Delosperma Cooper Iceplant may be a good fit!
Sempervium and Sedums may do well, also.
