Zion Osteospermum
Inspired by the colors of Zion National Park in Utah, this series features distinctive, novel colors.
Large flowers on plants with excellent branching and full, mounded habits have great consumer appeal.

An absolutely lovely flower. The purple's almost glow when in sunlight. Requires a bit of deadheading but re-blooms fairly quickly.
