Just £1.49

Description Sowing More Info Delivery
This unusual South American Chocolate Daisy produces vibrant yellow, daisy-like flowers with striking red, stripy undersides, and an impressive chocolate fragrance. Berlandiera lyrata has an airy habit, blooming during the evenings and showing off its flowers each morning; the petals slowly close as the temperature rises. This fascinating hardy perennial is reasonably drought tolerant once established. Grow it in small groups to achieve the most intense chocolate fragrance. Height: 45cm (18"). Spread: 50cm (20").

Once established, Berlandiera lyrata is reasonably drought tolerant and requires little maintenance. Feed and water plants regularly until they are fully established. Cut back the faded Berlandiera flower stems in autumn. Lift and divide overcrowded clumps of Chocolate Daisy in spring.
Sow February to April. Sow seed on the surface of lightly firmed, moist seed compost in pots or trays. Lightly cover seed with a sprinkling of compost or vermiculite. Place in a propagator or warm place, and keep at a temperature of between 15-21C (60-70F) After sowing, do not exclude light as this helps germination. Keep the surface of the compost moist but not waterlogged; germination will usually take 30-90 days. When large enough to handle, transplant seedlings into 7.5cm (3in) pots or trays.

Gradually acclimatise young plants to outdoor conditions for a few weeks before planting out after all risk of frost, 30-45cm (12-18in) apart.
