Osteospermum, commonly known as African daisy, is a beautiful flowering plant that produces large, daisy-like flowers in a range of colours. The Osteospermum White is a particular variety that boasts stunning white petals with a golden-yellow centre. This compact and bushy plant typically grows up to 30cm tall and has a spread of around 45cm.
The Osteospermum White prefers a sunny spot in the garden with well-drained soil. It can also be grown in containers and hanging baskets as long as it is placed in a bright, sunny location. The plant is generally hardy and can tolerate dry conditions, but it will appreciate regular watering during periods of extended dry weather.
This plant blooms from late spring to autumn, providing a long-lasting display of beautiful white flowers. To encourage further blooming, it is best to remove spent flowers regularly.
In terms of feeding, Osteospermum White will benefit from a balanced liquid fertiliser every two to four weeks during the growing season. This will help to ensure healthy growth and abundant flowering. Pruning is not typically required for this plant, but it may be beneficial to cut back the stems by a third after flowering has finished to encourage bushier growth the following year.
Overall, the Osteospermum White is an excellent choice for gardeners looking to add a splash of white to their garden. Its beautiful flowers and easy-care nature make it a popular choice for borders, rockeries, containers and hanging baskets.
