Osteospermum 'Lady Leitrim' is one of
the hardiest varieties which has slender buds which are tightly closed
on dull days, showing the metallic, blue-mauve backs to the petals.
Opening in the sun, the blushed-white daisy like flowers with navy-blue
centres deepen to pink with age. Prefers full sun with free-draining
soil or compost. Happy in borders and containers and makes an excellent,
eye catching, ground covering weed suppressant specimen for a sunny
bank or border edge.
Hardy cape daisies are plants with attitude, formerly known as Dimorphotheca;
they survive drought and neglect and soldier on to form a pretty mat of
impenetrable ground cover, which easily suppresses weeds. And after all
this there's still enough energy to flower heavily from June through to
October. Height from: 15cm(6"). Spread from : 90cm (36").
