The Q&A Archives: Greenleaf Euryops Daisy

Question: I resently purchased and planted my Daisy Tree. I love it. It did great for about 1 month, but now it is turning brown and looks like it might be drying. I planted it in the sun, (there is a little shade but not much)I water and plant food it once a week, but it still looks like It is drying. HELP! What can I do to make it trive?

Answer: Euryops grows best in full sun in average soil, and appreciates a deep soaking every week during the hottest part of the summer. I think your plant is showing signs of transplant stress. It should overcome this as soon as the roots become established. Withhold fertilizer, but continue to water deeply on a regular basis. As long as the soil drains well, the roots should adjust and the plant should perk right up. (To check how well the soil drains, water as usual and wait 3-4 days, then dig a hole near the base of your plant. If the soil is still moist 3" beneath the surface, you won't need to water for a few more days; if the soil is dry, water again; if the soil is soggy wet, it doesn't drain well and you can withhold water for another week to 10 days. Best wishes with your Euryops daisy!
