Ursinia

This gloriously happy annual blooms and blooms and blooms. Extremely floriferous and easy to grow, this South African native is just beginning to make inroads in the garden community. Its sunny, golden blooms last for months and are backed by a rich green mound of ferny foliage. Plant it in beds and borders for a guaranteed pop of color, or add it to container gardens for long-lasting color. Its main bloom period is spring and summer, but it blooms sporadically in winter, too.
