A brand new Federation daisy that changes colour!

Part of the Super Size Series of Federation Daisies, Super Chameleon features a flower size that's around 50% bigger than normal marguerites. Flowers first bloom as a warm, banana yellow with splashes of hot pink along the edges of the petals and as time passes the flower progresses into a completely hot pink bloom. These flowers will cover the entire plant and create a beautiful and forever changing display! Bred by NuFlora International, the Super Size Series of Federation Daisies must be seen to be believed, ask for them at your local plant retailer!

Planting
Plant in full or part sun position with well drained soils. If drainage is poor, such as in most clay soils, break down the clay or build up your garden bed to provide good drainage.
Watering
Federation Daisies aren’t particularly thirsty plants but they will benefit from regular watering, particularly whilst establishing and when the flower buds are forming. The plants will be able to withstand short periods of dryness once established. Tub plants should be kept evenly moist.
Fertiliser
Feed in autumn and spring with controlled release fertiliser to promote flower formation and good plant health.
Pruning
Federation Daisies were bred to branch naturally from the base and stay nice and compact. They don’t need pruning as a rule, perhaps a very light trim to remove spent flowers, if desired. Do not cut into old wood as this could kill the plant.
Pests and Diseases
The plants are seldom attacked by pests, but if aphids appear they can be hosed off the plants with a strong jet of water. Alternatively, apply an appropriate insecticide at the rate recommended by the manufacturer.
