sunscape daisy

zulubeads(8 NV)June 12, 2004

I have planted 4 Sunscape Daisies and I have managed to kill all but 1 of them. Two were in containers and two were in flower beds. I have tried everything, but I just can't seem to get it right. I've had them in full sun, partial sun with too much water, then too little water. I've tried all purpose fertilizer and fertilizer for succulents. I've also tried doing nothing and ignoring it. Of course the one that I have ignored is still alive, but it isn't blooming or growing. This plant is very new to me, so I am happy for any suggestions you may have.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Stick w/ the leave them alone technique.These plants thrive on neglect and bloom off and on all summer for me.They seem to like it hot and dry and then a deep soaking.If the plant doesn't look like its declining leave it alone.Could be the root system is getting established.Mine bloomed well this spring but has done nothing for weeks.I know the blooms will be back though.
