Felicia is a perennial sub shrub that is commonly grown as an annual plant in the UK, where it will rapidly spread and cover open ground, producing masses of sky blue daisy like flowers throughout the summer months. If grown as an annual young plants will need regular watering as they establish, especially if grown in containers. If you are lucky enough to have over wintered plants, then they will benefit from a spring feed with a general purpose granular fertilizer to boost growth and flowering.

Cultivation tips: This half hardy native to South Africa can overwinter during mild winters or overwintered under cold glass, however it is often panted as an summer annual, either at the front of a bed or in containers or baskets. It is best planted in fertile well drained soils, in sunny sheltered locations either in beds of baskets.
