The Livingstone Daisy has the classic good looks of a daisy but with a twist. Hot pink flowers have thin petals that surround yellow anthers. The overlapping petals give the blooms an almost feathery look. Enjoy the blooms throughout summer and into fall. The trailing stems have thick succulent leaves. The triangular foliage is green with creamy white margins.

The formal name of this plant is Dorotheanthus bellidiformis 'Mezoo Trailing Red’. This Dorotheanthus is a mat-forming plant with reaching stems, so use the Livingstone Daisy as a groundcover or fill gaps in a mixed bed. The Livingstone Daisy makes an excellent container plant where it functions as a spiller. Feature this plant in a hanging basket or window box where the stems can hang down.

Livingstone Daisy Care

Plant the Livingstone Daisy in full sun and in dry, well-drained soil. This beauty is heat and drought tolerant and prefers to mostly dry out before being watered. Container-grown plants need water more often than those in the ground, so water weekly or when the top layer of soil feels dry. Succulents are not heavy feeders, but applying a weak liquid fertilizer in the spring will help the plant thrive.

Remove spent flowers to maintain a tidy look. Trim growth to ground level after the first frost, or transplant the Livingstone Daisy into a container and move it inside for the winter.

Livingstone Daisy Spacing

Livingstone Daisy plants reach 3 to 5 inches tall and 12 to 15 inches wide. Space landscape plants 12 to 15 inches apart, center on center, or feature up to three plants in a 12-inch container.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
