Osteospermum, aka African Daisy, is definitely a heat and sun-loving perennial, growing vigorously during our Pacific NW summers, but too tender to survive our winters. 'FlowerPower Purple/Red' osteospermum bears an abundance of vibrant purple/red (magenta?) daisy-shaped flowers during the warm days of summer into the fall. This variety forms nicely branching, upright mounds, 10" - 14" tall and up to 20" wide, perfect as a centerpiece for a hanging basket or container planter, in garden borders, or mass plantings. Although somewhat drought tolerant once established in the ground, it does require regular watering in containers, and it appreciates regular doses of fertilizer.
