A remarkably handsome perennial herbaceous plant which has recently been introduced from South Africa. It grows in heavy clumps, has leaves about one foot in length, deeply cut, and blooms almost continuously throughout the year, bearing great masses of Marguerite-like flowers which are of a bright terra cotta color and have stems about one and a half feet in length. The Transvaal Daisy should be in every garden.
Propagate by seeds sown during Spring, in soil composed of half leaf-mold, well decomposed, and half silver-sand, covering the seeds to the depth of an eighth of an inch. As soon as the seedlings have formed four leaves, they should be potted singly in two-inch pots and afterwards given larger pots as required. Propagation of the Transvaal Daisy may also be effected by division of the roots during March or April.
