The origins of this attractive group of about 70 species of shrubs and perennials are in Africa which gives us the common name – African daisy.

The flowers are a little daisy-like and there are many cultivated varieties that might need a bit of extra warmth in winter but some are bred to survive in temperatures as low as –10ºC! Colours come in shades of pink, yellow or white with some brighter versions pushing towards purple and cerise.

Osteospermum ‘Sunadora Hotspots Marbella’ is a new variety that comes in a fantastic orange shade and Osteospermum ‘Whirlygig’ has white spoon-shaped florets that are often powder-blue below.
