Gardeners' Notes:

I love this flower - it's very important to dead head the spent flowers or the plant dies out early - I cut back the entire single stem that the spent bloom was on and it just keeps blooming away. These look great in a mixed container!

They bloom from September thru April here and can get quite large. They don't like heat and they don't like wet feet. Although I plant them every fall they are the first of my winter annuals to die off here in zone 9b.

I purchased several Osteospermum "Symphony" plants in spring 2003 including Lemon Symphony. While they were lovely, I found them very short-lived here in our summers, which can sometimes be rainy or have fewer sunny days than elsewhere - even when planted in well drained soil. By mid July they were done for.
