GREENHOUSE: Plants are a pretty combination of richly scented, feathery foliage and vivid orange daisy flowers with a dark purple center ring. Plants are excellent in rock gardens, dwarf borders and make excellent long lasting cut flowers. Many florists use ursinia as a winter flowering house plant. It requires at least 12 hours of daylight, as a pot plant. Plants bloom so profusely that the foliage and wiry stems are sometimes totally hidden. Sow seed indoors Apr. 1st. directly into 2.25 in/6 cm peat pots @ 5 seeds per pot (evenly spaced); 1/8-1/4 in/3-6 mm deep and cover seeds with fine soil. Germinate @ 70°F/21°C soil temp. for 12 days. Set plants outdoors June 10th spacing plants 61 in/15 cm apart.

DIRECT SEEDING: Sow seed outdoors as above, May 20th for late July blooms. Flowers close at night and on cloudy days. Choose a warm sunny spot that is well drained and has rather poor soil. Too much fertilizer will limit flower production. Lift plants in Sept. for flowering house plants in 5 in/13 cm pots.
