Osteopermum-African Daisy, Cape Daisy

Propagating African Daisy is usually done by tip cuttings, with constant misting, in autumn or try layering. There are over 85 different species and the colors range from purple to yellow to white to blue and with constant deadheading will bloom throughout the summer up until frost but prefer cooler areas. The normal hardiness zones are 8-10. Butterflies are attracted to the flowers and the plants can vary in height from 8-24" and must have a well draining but moist soil and are susceptible to root rot and viruses, either in full sun or partial shade. African Daisies are native to Africa.
