Arctotis Pumpkin Pie PP14,732 ['Archnah'] Orange African Daisy) - An evergreen perennial with a compact habit to 10 to 14 inches tall with velvety silver-gray foliage and bright pumpkin-orange flowers that appear continuously from April through November. Plant in full sun. Very low water needs. Hardy to 20-25 degrees F (Zone 9). Likely a Venidio-Arctotis hybrid or Arctotis Harlequin Hybrid (syn. Arctotis hybrida, X Venidioarctotis) which involved crossing and back crossing several species including Arctotis venusta grandis and Venidium [now Acrtotis] fastuosa. Hardy to 20 to 25 F. This plant is the product of a breeding program conducted by Graham Brown in Cobbitty, New South Wales, Australia with the objective of creating new early flowering compact Arctotis cultivars with interesting-colored flowers. This plant is a sister seedling to the paler Arctotis Sun Spot Orange ['Archley'] that originated from a cross made in 1998 between Arctotis 'Flame' and Arctotis 'Silver Carpet'. It was granted US Patent PP14,732 in April 2004 and is marketed in the US as part of Proven Winners Raver series. This patented plant became unavailable in 2018 and so we no longer are able to offer it.  The information provided on this page is based on research we have conducted about this plant in our nursery's library, from what we have found about it on reliable online sources, as well as from observations in our nursery of crops of this plant as well as of plants growing in the nursery's garden and those in other gardens. We will also 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 Pumpkin Pie ['Archnah'] PP14,732.
