The African daisy, with lovely daisy-like flowers, originates from South Africa.
Also known as the Cape Daisy or Blue-eyed Daisy (Osteospermum fruticosum) are members of the (Aster plant) Asteraceae family.
This tender perennial of the daisy family wants a frost-free location, enjoys a well-drained soil with lots of sun.
The flowers do very well in warm areas receiving full sunlight for a number of hours daily. They open fully in full sun but close at night seems like the chief complaint about this huge plant group.
