    The name Osteospermum is derived from the Greek osteon (= bone) and Latin spermum (= seed). Osteospermums belong to the daisy family ( Compositae / Asteraceae), hence their common names: African Daisy or South African Daisy, Cape Daisy and Blue-eyed Daisy.

They mustn't be confused with the annual Dimorphotheca. Although most commercial Osteospermums are labeled as annuals they are in fact half-hardy perennials or subshrubs. This means they are not entirely hardy and will therefore not survive persistent frosts. However, they can be propagated by cuttings or overwintered in a frost free environment.

Very nice--love the pop of color off the dark greens.
Have a terrific trip - I'm sure it will be amazing, and full of endless photography for you; looking forward to seeing what you saw.

Interesting read about this gorgeous flower Dominick. I love the beautiful colors and the way it stands out from the greenery. You did a fantastic job with the details to, love that center of the flower. So pretty my friend.
Have a safe and wonderful trip my friend.
