Globularia x indubia (Globe Daisy) - This is an unusual and beautiful small, dense shrub that grows to 2 feet tall and 5 feet wide with dark olive-green 2 inch long lance-shaped leaves. The dark lavender-blue flower buds open to reveal 1 inch globular flower heads with white petals with lavender blue margins. Flowering commences in early spring and continues through summer. Plant in full sun with a well-drained soil. Globe daisy is drought tolerant but looks better with an occasional watering. Plants in our demonstration garden were tip damaged at 25 degrees F. and resprouted after being frozen to the ground at 18 degrees F. This plant is the naturally occurring hybrid between two species (G. sarcophylla and G. salicina) whose ranges overlap in the Tirajana region of Gran Canaria Island. The Globe Daisies are so named because they appear to be small round daisies but they are actually in their own family, the Globulariaceae. Our plants are grown from seed received from the Huntington Botanic Garden. We have sold this plant since 1991.  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 Globularia x indubia.
