Just moved to Pueblo Co and bought this flower for the first time. Your article was much appreciated since I knew very little about the flower. Not sure what grows here as of yet...
but these look good. Thanks

Thanks. I've planted these in the past but when it got hot during the summer I was disappointed in them. I think I'll plant them in a different area. It gets to warm on the patio.

I plant these in a mixed container in spring with heat lovers like verberna and tradescantia. When it gets too hot for the osteospermum, the verbena takes over. The African daisies to appreciate some afternoon shade in our hot summers.

I want to grow these for my nephew's wedding. The white ones with the purple centers are his fiancee's wedding colors and she is enchanted with this beautiful flower. Any idea where I could get seeds or establised plants for next summer? I have not seen them in the catalogs that I have mailed to me. Thanks for any help anyone can offer.

Our PlantScout plantfinder tool is a great way to locate special plants.
Here is our PlantFiles page and all you have to do is click the vendor link to see the vendors:

I live in Gilroy, California and would like to know where I could buy an Osteospermum, "whirligig" variety?

Thank you, Suzanne

I don't have a specific vendor listed for this specific plant, but I do have these that sell osteospermums:

We also have a directory of garden destinations called Go Gardening and these are the nurseries and garden centers within 25 miles of Gilroy:

I hope this helps you with your search.
