Availability: In Stock
A reliable bloomer, 'Zulu Prince' will fill the garden with 3"–4" flowers above silver-tinged foliage, attracting bees, birds, and butterflies from midsummer to fall. Also known as Monarch of the Veldt due to its prolific presence on the plains of southern Africa, this hardy, practically care-free beauty will keep on blooming through summer's heat where other flowers falter, as the sturdy plant thrives in poor soil and hot, dry conditions. Flowers open to greet the sun on sunny days and follow it throughout the day.

These seeds were started indoors in January and transplanted out in March. Excellent germination, and seedling performance was phenomenal. Fast, even growth. Many of the plants were already budding out at transplanting, and just a week after planting the plants exploded in eye-catching blooms to welcome spring. Though I am growing these for container display this year (large raised planters), next year I plan to grow four times as many for cut flower production. Congrats on another winner, BI!

These did not sprout well and once sprouted did not grow well.

I'm a big fan of daisies, and grew these for the first time. 100% germination indoors with heat mats. Love the fuzzy texture of the leaves and flower heads and delight in watching the beautiful blooms open each morning.

Tough, Beautiful Flower for Hot, Windy Environments

5 out of 5 stars Jun 13, 2022
I winter sowed these into a ziploc bag in March on my deck. Transferred to a pot when 2-3 sets true leaves and they have grown so fast. They have taken high wind, intense reflected solar radiation, and near-100 degree temperatures without batting an eye. They even seem to like it and I've got a million blooms coming. This plant seems to be an ideal container plant for a terrible, dessicating environment. I will say the purple and orange bands around the center black disk seem to be alternating and not concentric on the first bloom I got. Still gorgeous.
