Livingstone Daisy 'Mezoo Trailing Red' - a great new plant

March 14, 2009 by Rick

Mezoo Trailing Red is a new plant introduction that trails and is often used in combinations as a replacement for variegated vinca vine, a plant typically used in planters with geraniums and spikes in states north of Florida. Mezoo Trailing Red performs well in Florida all year, flowers are small and red but the foliage is the attraction. Use it as a 'SPILLER' in combinations to echo white in other components. Combine it with other succulents for a low water use, long lived planting. We see this plant becoming very popular as a Florida Friendly Plant. As a ground cover it will brighten your sunny garden with very little water or care. The prominent variegation makes it glow in the twilight hour making it suitable for 'White Gardens'. Euphorbia Diamond Frost is another drought tolerant perennial to combine with Mezoo Trailing Red in plantings with Pentas or red or pink mound Lantana. Mezoo Trailing Red in plantings with Euphorbia Diamond Frost and Knockout Roses accent the roses give the bed a bouquet look of baby's breath and bright foliage. You will find many uses for this wonderful new plant that thrives in Florida's hot sun and even grows well in bright shade. There are lots of right places for this right plant!
