OSTEOSPERMUM BOUNTY

Osteospermum is a genus of flowering plants belonging to the Calenduleae, one of the smaller tribes of the sunflower/daisy family Asteraceae. The common name is African daisy or Cape daisy.

Osteospermum used to belong to the genus Dimorphotheca, but only the annual species remain in that genus now; the perennials have been placed in the genus Osteospermum. An amazing variety of cultivars have been developed, in a stunning variety of colours. The new "Flower Power Double" hybrids have added more diversity in this versatile and prolific garden bloomer.
