The Bokbaaivygie (Dorotheanthus bellidiformis) also well known as the Livingstone daisy is a plant which belongs to the Dorotheanthus genus. It is a low maintenance plant, great for beginner gardeners and those that like gardens that don't need much overseeing.
In spring you will be dazzled with shiny blooms in a range of beautiful colours. They are well suited for rockery gardens and spring borders, but will also do well in containers.
Furthermore, Bokbaaivygies are incredibly water-wise and they attract butterflies and bees to your garden!
If you are looking for a beautiful shower of colour in spring - this guy will not disappoint.
