Osteospermum (African Daisy)
Osteospermum is a genus of about 50 species of annuals, perennials and sub-shrubs in the family Asteraceae.
Osteospermum has beautiful daisy-like flowers in a variety of colors. Like other members of the Asteraceae family, the blooms are actually flower heads composed of a central disc which contains a number of tiny individual flowers known as florets. Most of the species have flat petals, although there are some lovely varieties with spoon-shaped petals. Osteospermums are easy to maintain and will provide an abundance of color for many months.
