Arctotis stoechadifolia (Cream African Daisy) - An aggressive low-growing groundcover that hugs the ground with leafy, ribbed stems and toothed large leaves that are grayish-green and covered with many fine white hairs. The stems can root where they are in contact with the ground. The large daisy-like flowers are white with a steel blue center that is encircled by a band of yellow. Hardy to 25-30 degrees F. We offered this plant in the past, listing it in our catalogs from 1995 to 2000 but because of its short shelf life (it just grows too fast!) we stopped growing it. We brought it back into production in 2010 because so many customers have requested it after seeig our extensive planting of it in the nursery.  This information is based on research conducted about this plant in our nursery library and from reliable online sources. We also take into consideration observations of it in our nursery of crops, as well as of plants growing in the nursery's garden and those in other gardens we have visited. We will incorporate comments received from others and welcome getting feedback from anyone who may have additional information, particularly if it includes cultural information that would aid others in growing Arctotis stoechadifolia.
