Osteospermum - African Daisy
African Daisies are typically planted as annuals, especially in Northern Climates because they are zone 9-11 hardy and Native to South Africa. These daisy like blooms consist of bright, colorful petals that sometimes fade into a different shade towards their compact “eyes” that creates a tie-dye appearance. African Daisies are cool season bloomers and will take a “break” in the heat of summer, then continue blooming until frost. Blooms tend to close up at night or on cloudy days but fully open in the sunlight. Growing from 1-2′ high and wide, African Daisies thrive in well drained soil, are great in containers and attract birds.
