Felicia amelloides - Blue Marguerite
Felicia amelloides is a real eye-catcher. Striking sky-blue flowers with yellow centers stand high above the leaves. It's fast growing, needs little care, and blooms almost year round. True blue is a rare flower color, but Felicia is definitely blue.
This beauty complements any landscaping, country cottage to xeriscape. Native to South Africa, it needs good drainage, prefers sun but blooms in the shade, even tolerates trampling and will recover from a light frost. Perennial in zones 9-11, Felicia is a delightful annual elsewhere. Seeds germinate easily. A light pruning in summer will encourage more flowers.
Butterflies love Felicia. Pests do not. The perfect plant.
