Hi, I am new to the forum and I am trying to find out the name of a plant that I have.
The only way I can describe it is, it has flowers that open and close when the sun is out. Could they be osteuspermum?
It's likely to be African daisies. Otherwise known as Osteospermum and because they're the most common.
They come as perennials and annuals.
But there's plenty of other flowers do that and without a photo or description it's hard to do anything other than take a guess.
These plants are mixed colours, they are so very colourful.
Are they daisy like? Can you get a photo?
Livingstone daisies perhaps?
Not,osteospermums......mine, and I grow several varieties, stay open in,cloud or sun.
Without picture it is likely to be mesembryanthemum or gazania that do open in sunshine.
Ian, what colour? Spreading habit or clump/rosette type? Do the leaves have a scent? Leaves rough?
It seems that I am setting you all a task. These flowers came from a packet of Miracle Gro flower magic, it lists some varieties but not all. They are daisy like.
Bet they are livingstone daisies, fleshy stems and bold bright coloured daisies Ian?
I will try and send a picture to see if the puzzle can be solved.

Try this thread Beaus Mum.
It should explain things.
