Proven Winners

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.

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!).
