BRACHYCOME (Brachyscome) - "Swan River Daisy" - Hardy and Half Hardy Annuals

BRACHYCOME (Brachyscome) - "Swan River Daisy" Described.

BRACHYCOME (Brachyscome) - "Swan River Daisy"

BRACHYCOME (Brachyscome) - "Swan River Daisy" - The Swan River Daisies are elegant. Half-hardy Annuals from 6 inches to 12 inches high. They are very useful for edging beds occupied with larger subjects, and they make a good show if grown in a patch filling a space of a square yard. The best-known species is B. iberiafolia (Compositce), introduced from the Swan River in 1843. Though fairly popular it has not yet gained the favour it merits, but now that seedsmen are working hard and successfully to secure greater freedom of flowering, a better habit of growth, larger flowers, and some variety of colouring, there is little doubt that before long it will deserve a place in most gardens. The flowers closely resemble those of the Star Cinerarias, and they are of a deep blue colour; Blue Star has brighter blue flowers, while there are white and rose coloured varieties listed in the best catalogues.

BRACHYCOME (Brachyscome) - "Swan River Daisy"

A sunny position and light, rich soil suits these pretty Daisies, and it is an easy matter to raise a good stock of plants by making a sowing out-of-doors in April, or, where the soil is cold or the district a late one, an alternative plan is to sow in gentle heat in March or April, and prick off the seedlings quite early, giving them ample room to develop. Crowded seedlings result in slender plants that will need the support of low twigs at, or soon after, planting time, at the end of May.
