Mesembryanthemum – Gelato Bright Red


Mesembryanthemum is a low spreading plant with succulent leaves and a mass of brilliant red daisy-like flowers from June to August. Flowers open in the sun during the day, and they look good in borders, as ground cover, in rockeries, dry banks and containers. They trail nicely over walls. Flowers are long-lasting on the plant and make good dried flowers.

When the seedlings are large enough to handle, prick off into trays 5cm apart. Gradually harden off before planting in the flowering site 10cm apart from the end of May.

Hints and Tips – Livingstone Daisies are good water-wise plants, tolerating drought and dry soils once settled in. They grow best in the sun and well-drained soil.
