Description

Osteospermum  (African Daisy)  oss-tee-oh-SPUR-mum

Osteospermum is from Africa, hence the name African daisies. Growing African daisies require conditions similar to those found in Africa. It likes heat and full sun and prefers evenly moist, well-drained soils. However, too-wet soil is a sure way to stress out, and even kill, osteospermums. Once they are established, they are fairly tolerant of drought. Remove any spent blooms and fertilize regularly to keep them blooming and looking their best. Osteospermum flowers close up at night so don’t worry if you see your plants folding their tents when the sun goes down!
