Hardy Osteospermums brighten up even the toughest, dry soils with their dazzling, daisy-like blooms. These sun-loving African Daisies produce low clumps of weed-suppressing foliage, and masses of cheerful flowers that open their petals to greet the sun. Perfect for dotting through rockeries, planting at the front of sunny borders or filling patio containers.

Osteospermum Hardy Duo comprises:

  • Osteospermum ‘Tresco Purple’ - Bold pink daisy flowers open every morning to greet the sun. Height: 40cm (16"). Spread: 90cm (36").
  • Osteospermum jucundum var. compactum - Irrepressibly cheerful, bright pink daisy flowers smother carpets of low growing foliage. Height: 15cm (6"). Spread: 90cm (36").

Culinary note: The bright coloured flowers can be used as a garnish or in ice cubes to add an extra dimension to summer drinks. For more details about edible flowers click here.

Pot up hardy osteospermum daisies and grow them on in frost free conditions until plants are well grown. When plants are well developed and all risk of frost has passed, gradually acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over 7 to 10 days before planting them outdoors into borders and patio containers. Grow osteospermum plants in any well drained soil in a warm, sheltered position in full sun. African Daisies dislike cold wet soils. Improve heavy soil prior to planting by adding plenty of coarse grit.
Feed and water osteospermum plants regularly throughout the growing season. Deadhead faded osteospermum flowers throughout the flowering period to encourage more blooms to be produced.
