Create Your Own (Wild) Flower Carpet with Colorful Osteospermum, Part of the Daisy, Sunflower Families

Img 8632

Osteospermum are in bloom now and will last into summer, making them the perfect plant for lasting, easy, vibrant color. Available in a variety of colors (yellow, purple, blue), this plant looks quite like a daisy, and is a member of the daisy and sunflower families (Yes, you can definitely see the resemblance!).


It's highly likely that you've already seen this flower around town, as it is a winner that gardeners love.

Planted together in rows or other groupings, Osteospermum creates a swath of stunning color, much like flower fields. This plant loves sun, and its spent flowers do not need to be removed (deadheaded) for it to continue to flower.

Osteospermum is frequently used in theme-amusement parks for mass color, and in parks and other public spaces like parks. It can be planted in the ground and in containers, making it highly versatile.

Stop in and snag some Osteospermum now and add them to your garden/patio lineup for lasting color. Ask our Garden Design Experts for assistance.
