: I purchased several plants which have flowers resembling daisies. They have grown to about 12" tall. The blooms are of varigated colors. The little tag in each pot identified the plants as a "garcenia" and had just basic info on it, i.e. how tall it would grow, how far apart to plant them, etc. I can find no other information regarding a plant by this name. Can you please advise me whether or not I should be pinching off the blooms after they have expired so that other blooms will take their place? Thanks or your help.never heard of a garcenia, but then so many new plants get introduced all the time. definitely deadhead your plant, you don't want to sap the energy of the plant by possibly having seedpods form. are the individual flowers variegated, or did you buy one plant of every color they had on display. a variegated daisy-type flower is hard to imagine, could it be a zinnia?was the plant tag a printed plastic one from the nursery, or was it just a simple wooden tongue depressor-type that they sometimes use in greenhouses to help identify different species? also, tags may have gotten switched before you bought the plants. i've seen many mis-identified plants at garden centers. sounds like a mini-mystery for you, post the answer when you finally find out what it is,ok. thanks, and enjoy
