Federation Daisies are still recognised as the best marguerite daisies in the market. Bred by NuFlora International, they’re selected for their basal branching habit that produces a compact, tidy plant.
These varieties are known for their high flower counts, repeat flowering, high disease resistance and harsh weather tolerance. Plus they only require minimal watering, making them the perfect fuss free plant that gardeners will love.
|Maintenance||Pinch when producing vegetative growth to encourage a more compact, bushy plant|
|Fertiliser||Applications of complete fertiliser or liquid plant food during the active growing period will ensure strong growth and plenty of flowers. Well rotted animal manure around the base will also give excellent results|
|Watering||Plants will benefit from regular watering, especially while establishing or when early buds are forming. They can withstand short periods of dryness once established, and should be kept evenly moist when in tubs|
|Pest & Diseases||Seldom attacked by pests, but if aphids appear they can be hosed off the plants. Alternatively insecticide can also be used as recommended by the manufacturer|
|Climate Zone||3, 4|
|Tolerances||Light Frost Tolerant|
|Use||Border, Cut Flower, Garden, Native, Pots & Tubs|
|Unauthorised commercial propagation or any sale, conditioning, export, import or stocking of propagating material of this variety is an infingement under the Plant Breeders Rights Act, 1994.|
