African Daisies go by other names such as Cape daisy, blue-eyed daisy, and South African daisy. The botanical name, also called the scientific name, is Osteospermum spp. As the name suggests, they are native to South Africa, thus are drought and heat tolerant once established.  The African daisy was discovered in the 19th century and quickly became popular in other areas of the world.

They thrive under hot, dry conditions. They close their flowers when the sun goes in!

Grow Notes

Sow
Sow direct or raise seedlings in Spring about 6 weeks before the last frost or early Summer. Plant seeds by sprinkling them on the soil – do not cover, 30 to 45 cm spacing. DO NOT COVER SEEDS AS THEY NEED LIGHT FOR GERMINATION.

Keep soil moist, not wet until germination. Water at the roots about once or twice a week in hot weather.
