Bengal Tiger provides superior ground coverage while also providing a profusion of striking colour. This fantastic Arctotis produces a tough and thick cover of foliage up to 20cm thick making it a fantastic weed suppressant. It's leaves form a 'ruffled edge', giving texture and an interesting appearance to any landscape. A profusion of striped, bright orange and yellow flowers will appear while most other plants are waiting for the warmer months. Great for covering up those bare patches that other plants just don't seem to survive in.
