Question: What is the real name of a Livingston daisy, is it annual or perennial, and will it grow in zone 8?

Answer: Dorotheanthus aizoaceae is the botanical name of Livingston Daisy. It's a native of South Africa so needs a tropical environment to grow. It's generally used as a summer annual, and usually planted in pots so it can be taken indoors when the night temperatures get cool. You can keep it inside over the winter and take it back outdoors in the spring and summer in your area.
