Osteospermum Seeds

Osteospermum ecklonis

 

Osteospermum (also known as Cape Daisy) is a lovely genus where plants are bushy and covered with beautiful daisy-like flowers in pure, clean colors. Osteo's from seed traditionally have been scarce, with only mixes available, but the possibility to grow separate colors from seed is now starting to open up. For home gardeners, although Osteospermum (also known as Livingston Daisy) may be a little trickier to start and grow compared to other annuals. Osteospermum adds instant cheer to spring and fall gardens with its colorful, daisy-shape flowers and dark green foliage. The blooms are wonderful for cutting and appear in a wide range of colors. In fact, it's such a striking plant that cut flowers sometimes look artificial!

The plant does best in full sun or part shade and moist, well-drained soil. It likes cool weather, so in hot-summer areas, it blooms best in spring and fall. Though grown as an annual in most parts of the country, it is perennial in Zones 10-11.
