Demorphoteca is a perennial, herbaceous flowering plant native to South Africa that blooms from spring to autumn and produces many daisy-shaped flowers. Demorphoteca is a favorite plant of horticulturists in gardens and rock gardens, while it is also chosen by amateur gardeners for planting in pots, planters and hanging baskets. There are two types of Demorphoteca, the upright varieties and the creeping varieties. We choose the rectangular bi-shaped containers to give a more compact shape to the flowers in pots and planters. We plant the creeping Demorphoteca for ground cover in the garden and create a blooming carpet of flowers.
The Demorphoteca has important requirements both in watering and in fertilizing. Especially the creeping variety needs more frequent watering, twice a week in the spring season and every two days in the summer season. During spring and summer, we add fertilizer, once a month, to give us rich flowering with a long duration. We also make use of the creeping Demorphoteca holders for hanging baskets for the colored flowers to fall and give a different tone to our balcony. There are varieties of Demorphoteca with different flower colors such as white, yellow, purple, pink and orange, and there are also many varieties of Demorphoteca with bicolor flowers.
