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 variety of colors. Like other members of the Aster 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.
