Proven Winner Osteospermum

Wow! That's the comment most people make when they first see blooming Osteospermums (or Osteos as we like to call them). They really do make a stunning display of colourful daisy-shaped blooms so prolific you can hardly see the foliage.

Orange Osteospermums Proven Winner

Osteos bloom from spring to frost and though they are thought of as annuals, they sometimes winter over when they are planted in sheltered locations; such as under the eaves of a west facing wall.

They come in a full range of colours including white, cream, yellow, peach, pink, mauve, purple and orange. Whew! So, what else can I tell you.? Oh yes, the deer don't like them (Yippee!).

Proven Winner Osteospermum Spoons

They like hot sunny locations and are best in large containers or in the ground because they grow to about 14" in height. They also look great in window boxes and paired up with other Proven Winners such as the creeping verbenas.

One of our customers has planted her window boxes, for the last few years, with Orange Osteos and "Tapien Blue Violet" Verbena, which makes a stunning combination.

Proven Winner Light Purple Osteospermums

Wherever you choose to plant, Osteos remember to choose a location with at least 6 hours of direct sun to a full sun location and add a little Organic Mix to the soil at planting time. Remember to water them regularly so the get off to a good start and feed them with a water-soluble fertiliser weekly to bi-weekly such as 20-20-20 or 15-30-15 (Plant Prod or Miracle Gro).

Enjoy!
