I have just seen an osteopurnum that is variegated, evergreen and has white flowers this time of year.

It is just what I need to complete the white border I have, problem is the label says acid soil. The soil here is more alkali. Has anyone expeience of growing this plant? Would it grow. A container is out of the question.

I think osteospermums will grow in any well drained soil. I have one and it's very alkaline here.

Yes I had that one and it is beautiful but it didnt survive the winter.  I think osteospermums can be abit on the tender side?  I had it planted in a pot in normal compost and it was fine - until the winter came....
