We have seen Osteospermum (African Daisies) sold in greenhouses, which are usually propagated by cuttings, so when we saw seeds available, we just had to trial them. Pure white daisy flowers have two-toned purple centers that radiate slightly out on the petals. The tidy, compact plants bloom all summer, working well in containers or landscape plantings.
