I agree with Carpe_Diem. Osteospermum has certainly not been hardy for me in Zone 7a. It has been a lovely annual, however.

This is currently listed as cold-hardy to USDA zone 2a ??

Wouldn't zone 8 or 9 be more realistic for Osteospermum ?

Thanks DG,
Years ago at the dawn of MS Windows I downloaded an image of this plant to use as a 'winter blues' wallpaper. Over the years I've tried to identify this amazing flower, albeit halfheartedly. Thanks to DG's home page designers for including 'Pink Charme' today!
