Osteospermum are a large, daisy like flowering perennial. These plants make an eye catching summer display in an open border, as ground cover or in containers.
Flowers can be single or semi-double. Osteospermum Daisy-Mae Mixed produces masses of large long lasting daisy-like flowers in a variety of colours. Osteospermum give vigorous, brightly coloured blooms from mid spring throughout the whole of the summer. Their flower heads will open wide when the sun is bright so a sunny position will give the best display.
