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.  Information on this page is based on research conducted in our nursery library, from online sources, as well as from observations made of this plant as it grows in our nursery, in the nursery's garden and in other gardens where we have observed it. We also will incorporate comments received from others and welcome getting feedback of any kind from those who have additional information, particularly if this information is contrary to what we have written or includes additional cultural tips would aid others in growing Arctotis Pumpkin Pie ['Archnah'].
