Description

The Argyranthemum Madeira Crested Hot Pink is a stunning flowering plant that is sure to add a pop of vibrant colour to any garden or outdoor space. This plant is a member of the daisy family and produces an abundance of large, showy blooms that are hot pink in colour. Each bloom features a distinctive crested centre that adds an extra layer of interest and texture to the plant. This particular variety of Argyranthemum is well-suited to sunny locations, where it can soak up plenty of sunlight and thrive in warm temperatures. It is a relatively compact plant, growing to a height of around 18-24 inches and spreading out to a width of 12-18 inches. This makes it an ideal choice for containers, window boxes, or as a border plant.

Planting Conditions

Argyranthemums, also known as marguerite daisies, thrive in well-drained soil that is rich in organic matter. These plants prefer full sun exposure, but they can tolerate partial shade in hot climates. Argyranthemums are drought-tolerant, but they grow best when watered regularly, especially during the flowering period. To encourage bushy growth and more flowers, it's recommended to pinch back the tips of the stems in spring and early summer. Argyranthemums are generally easy to care for and can be grown in pots or borders.

Watering & Feeding

Argyranthemums require regular watering during the growing season, but they don't like to sit in soggy soil. It's important to let the topsoil dry out slightly between watering to prevent root rot. To promote healthy growth and abundant flowering, a balanced fertilizer should be applied every two weeks during the growing season. A slow-release fertilizer can also be used at the beginning of the season. However, over-fertilizing can lead to excessive foliage growth and reduced flowering. Argyranthemums are generally low-maintenance plants and can be grown in a variety of soil types.

General Care

Argyranthemums are generally low-maintenance plants that require minimal care. They prefer full sun exposure and well-drained soil that is rich in organic matter. Regular watering and fertilizing during the growing season can promote healthy growth and abundant flowering. Deadheading spent blooms can encourage the growth of new flowers. To keep Argyranthemums looking their best, it's recommended to prune them back by about one-third of their size in early spring. These plants are generally disease and pest-resistant, making them a great addition to any garden.
