Felicia amelloides (L.) Voss, 472 1894. (Syn: Agathaea amelloides (L.) DC.; Agathaea amelloides var. amelloides ; Agathaea coelestis Cass. [Illegitimate]; Agathaea rotundifolia (Thunb.) Nees; Aster capensis var. rotundifolius (Thunb.) Harv.; Aster rotundifolius Thunb.; Cineraria amelloides L.; Cineraria amoena Salisb.; Cineraria oppositifolia Moench);
Felicia amelloides (blue daisy, blue marguerite) is a species of flowering plant of the family Asteraceae, native to South Africa. F. amelloides is synonymous with, and formerly known as, F. aethiopica, Aster amelloides, Aster capensis, and Aster coelestis.
F. amelloides is an evergreen shrublet usually 30–60 cm (12–24 in) tall by 50 cm (20 in) wide, but sometimes up to 1 m (3 ft 3 in) tall, with densely branched and frequently dark red stems, and rough, hairy, ovate green leaves. Striking blue composite flowers with prominent yellow centres, about 30 mm in diameter, and borne on naked stalks up to 180 mm long.
This species is much cultivated, and in the temperate world is usually grown as a half-hardy annual in pots, window-boxes, hanging baskets, and other summer bedding schemes for parks and gardens. Drought- and wind-resistant, it requires a sheltered aspect in full sun, and does not tolerate frost.
