I planted a few African Daisy plants in my front yard and after only a couple years, it feels like they have taken over–I’m not complaining!
common name: African daisy
scientific name: Osteospermum ecklonis
Native to South Africa, these daisies have a whole lot of character compared to their common daisy counterparts (Gerbera, Shasta, etc). With a range of colors from pale purple to yellow and a plethora of blooms on each bush, African daisy bushes make quite an impression. Frost or extreme heat will cause the plant to take a break from blooming, but in moderate climates like mine, these flower bloom constantly making the colorful spectacle never-ending! While I love my African daisies, you should really check out these varieties, holy moly!
