A more compact habit than other 'Arctotis' with silver leaves, and extra profuse blooms. They will flower with beautiful orange blooms from April until November. Looks great in baskets, combos, and pots. They are great for borders and for cuttings. Zones 2-11, for zones 9-11, this plant can also be a perennial.
