Artist's Description

W&N watercolour in my Moleskine 200gsm Nature Journal

Felicia or Kingfisher daisies are endemic to the coastal areas of the Eastern and Western Cape of South Africa; you’ll spot their blue blooms just about all year round on bushes growing on sand dunes or stony outcrops. Some varieties have variegated leaves.

Felicia has a very long flowering season from Summer through Autumn and are beloved by gardeners who like to use them as either an edging plant or in borders. They grow from 15 to 45 cm in height.
