pink O. barberae)
Osteospermum jucundum - from South
Africa, this beautiful plant is iron-clad
hardy in New England, surviving the last 5 years being grown in a pot,
exposed to the elements over winter. Each year, the branched woody
sprouts forth new growth, and in June, the most lovely silver pink flowers
stems. In the photos above and below, the darker pink flowers are O.
another showy hardy Osteospermum, but coarser and spreading
with prostrate leafy stems and brighter pink flowers. The
flowers of the
species persist well into Autumn, and are still in bloom here in
2003, after a good number of hard frosts.
