Osteospermum 'Blue Eyed Beauty'

African Daisy, Cape Daisy

Half-hardy Annual

  • The most rewarding plant for the least effort

Buttery yellow blooms with a contrasting blue eye smother this stocky little African Daisy from June to September. This early flowering variety has a compact, branching habit that is perfect for filling beds and containers, or edging sunny borders. Like all Cape Daisies, Osteospermum 'Blue Eyed Beauty' thrives in hot and sunny conditions, performing beautifully, even in difficult dry soils. Height and spread: 40cm (16").


Culinary note: The bright coloured flowers can be used as a garnish or in ice cubes to add an extra dimension to summer drinks. For more details about edible flowers click here.

Pot up osteospermum daisies and grow them on in frost free conditions until plants are well grown. When plants are well developed and all risk of frost has passed, gradually acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over 7 to 10 days before planting them outdoors into borders and patio containers. Grow osteospermum plants in any well drained soil in a warm, sheltered position in full sun. African Daisies dislike cold wet soils. Improve heavy soil prior to planting by adding plenty of coarse grit.
Feed and water Osteospermum plants regularly throughout the growing season. Deadhead faded Osteospermum flowers throughout the flowering period to encourage more blooms to be produced.
