This Osteospermum has grown and flowered constantly, even right through winter, since planting 2 years ago. I live in north west Kent. It forms a dense sprawling mass of branches with the flowers held on stems at about 30/45 cms. It gives early flowers for the bees, butterflies, hoverflies, etc., and protection for hibernating ladybirds. In my garden, it's a star plant. Tresco Purple and Juncundum have not survived our winters.
