Blackfoot Daisy - I need help!
I love daisy type flowers. I love mums, coneflowers asters, dahlberg daisies, shasta daisies, rudbeckia and my new true love--blackfoot daisies.
They are all so pretty and look so happy. The blackfoot daisies are my new favorite (although rudbeckia remains my very favorite!) I get a smile on my face every time I see them. There is just a small problem with my emotional attachments to these precious flowers---I can't grow them!
I have tried very hard to ignore them as I read that is what you do. I only watered them when they were brand new or look wilted. I do deadhead them, but read that is not necessary. Some of them look like this picture....but some....
look like this. The plants looks healthy, but they just don't bloom. Do I need to feed them? Do I need to water more? Do they not grow in our black gumbo dirt? Do they just not like ME??
I need help!!!
