Our Dorotheanthus Liners (also called Livingstone Daisy) are native to South Africa and are very easy to grow. These unique low-growing plants produce a small red flower and can be used alone or in combination planters. As heat- and drought-tolerant plants, dorotheanthus make good groundcovers in landscapes as well.

Dorotheanthus will flower naturally as the days lengthen and continue to flower all season long. They grow best under high light conditions; they do not tolerate lower light levels in the landscape or greenhouse. To improve growth, branching and flowering, keep them in bright light.
