Formerly known as dimorphotheca, osteospermum was raised for many years annually from seed as a half-hardy annual, and it is still worth sowing some mixtures for choosing good forms to keep going from cuttings. Many named cultivars have been developed since then, and have become popular for summer bedding, especially in containers in warm sunny sites. 'Lady Leitrim' is a classic variety, with light pink blooms, demure and yet conspicuous when flowering en masse. This is hardy in sheltered spots, and spreads to make a green carpet of foliage, superb as edging. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it its prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM).
