Answer: Cape Daisies are a beautiful annual flower especially suited for hanging baskets. There are many varieties in several colors. They can be propagated by cuttings and I found a website for you that has quite a lot of information on Cape Daisy propagation, care requirements, etc. Try Sunscape at http://www.mccalif.com/html/plants/html/specialties.html <br>Here are some general guidelines for taking cuttings:<br><br>Use a well-drained, porous medium for starting your cuttings. <br><br>Select 5" or 6" cuttings and remove leaves along the bottom inch of the stem. Have your soil moist but not wet. With a pencil make a small hole in the soil to receive the cutting. A rooting hormone may be helpful.<br><br>Place the cutting in the hole, then cover the entire container with a plastic bag. Put 2 or 3 holes in the bag for ventilation. Use a stick to elevate the plastic<br>bag so that it does not touch cuttings and also to prevent<br>rain water from collecting and smashing cuttings. <br><br>Do not bother the cuttings for 6 to 8 weeks. After that time they should have rooted.
