Osteospermum, commonly known as African daisies or Cape daisies, are native to South Africa and belong to the daisy family. Available in white, yellow or a peachy-orange. With their daisy-like appearance and long blooming season, osteospermum has become a popular choice among gardeners for both garden beds and containers.


Osteospermum thrives in full sun, requiring at least 6-8 hours of direct sunlight per day. Ensure that you choose a location in your garden that receives ample sunlight to promote healthy growth and abundant blooms.

Prepare the soil before planting osteospermum by incorporating organic matter, such as compost or well-rotted manure. This will improve drainage and provide essential nutrients for the plants. Osteospermum prefers well-draining soil with a pH level between 6.0 and 7.0.

Proper watering is crucial for the health of osteospermum. Water the plants deeply and thoroughly, allowing the soil to dry slightly between waterings. Avoid overwatering, as it can lead to root rot. Mulching around the plants can help retain moisture and suppress weed growth.

To promote vigorous growth and abundant blooms, fertilize osteospermum with a balanced, slow-release fertilizer. Follow the manufacturer's instructions for application rates and timing. Avoid excessive fertilization, as it can result in lush foliage but fewer flowers.

Osteospermum is generally resistant to pests and diseases. However, keep an eye out for common garden pests like aphids and slugs. If necessary, treat the affected plants with organic pest control methods or consult a local gardening expert for advice.
