Dorotheanthus bellidiformis | Mezoo trailing red | Livingstone Daisy

$15.00

Sold By: Gardengineering

In stock

The Mezoo Trailing Red is a sprawling to mounding plant with succulent green leaves edged with white and occasionally accented by button-sized red flowers in spring. This annual succulent is from South Africa’s Cape Provinces. The small, round, daisy-like flowers appear on the stems among the heavy, elliptical, pointed leaves.

Bright flowers with many petite petals remain open during cloudy weather, unlike other Livingstone daisies which close if the sky darkens. This variety is a compact flower bred by Syngenta. It is commonly used as a border plant, in hanging baskets, or in a patio container. It also makes an excellent “spiller” in sunny container gardens or an annual groundcover in the rock garden. This plant tolerates poor soil, heat, and drought!

  • What to expect: You’ll get a healthy plant in a 4″ nursery pot. Please note: The pictures may show an enlarged plant (more mature plant) for the sake of showing off the plant at its peak!
  • Packaging & Shipping: Every plant is fragile and the shipping process is not always kind (or easy). That’s why every plant is packaged snugly with care in a pot with plastic wrapping tightly sitting over the dirt in the pot to prevent it from falling out as well as around the pot to hold it in place inside the shipping box.
  • Returns & Refunds: Due to the nature of the product, we cannot accept returns or refunds. If there are issues with your order, please reach out to us so that we can do our best to find an appropriate resolution.

Care instructions:

  1. Soil: A standard well-drained potting soil mix. We use a mixture of 50% perlite and 50% succulent soil mix to ensure the roots remain aerated and healthy.
  2. Light: Dorotheanthus Mezoo will grow best in full to partial sun, but will also thrive in shade.
  3. Water: Water thoroughly when the top 50-75% of the soil feels dry to touch, or when your plant starts to wrinkle a bit. Dorotheanthus Mezoo are succulent plants that are fairly drought-tolerant, but grow better with regular watering. During dry times, more watering may be needed, and cool, during rainy times, less watering may be needed.
  4. Temperature: The Mezoo thrives in temperatures 60-80 degrees, so they do well in typical indoor temperatures.
  5. Additional care: To encourage bushier growth and branching, feel free to pinch back growth every so often.

    This plant came in great condition and packaging was carefully done to avoid any damage. Unfortunately, the plant did lose two leaves over the course of three days after opening the plant from its packaging. But, the remaining plant+ its roots look very healthy. I already see another leaf popping up! Highly recommend this plant shop!

    The leaves on this plant are considerably larger than I thought they were going to be. I can see that this plant will be a real looker once it gets established and starts to grow. This was another “impulse” purchase, and I am so glad I included it in my order.

    The plant has been on my wishlist for a very long time, and this shop helped me get the plant of my dreams. It came in nearly perfect condition (as if it hadn’t been shipping for over a week to its destination!). I was extremely impressed by the thorough and intricate packaging of my plants and the care that went into packaging, keeping me updated, and reaching out to check on the condition of the plants once they reached me! Will definitely be recommending this plant shop to friends and will definitely be shopping here again!

    good first experience with this seller! my plant came with 2 beautiful leaves and one that will probably fall off, but this plant has so many nodes that i can propagate from. as you can see i’m already air layering the empty nodes. this plant has a lot of potential and i’m so happy i finally have one!

    The packaging the plants came in exceeded my expectations and were so secure. I received my order 5 days earlier than the expected delivery date so my plants arrived in great condition with only having a week in transit! The size and quality of the plants (also received a free bonus plant!) almost brought a tear to my eye with how healthy and strong they were. Beyond happy with my order and will be a returning customer ??
