I thought I had a lot of Osteospermums in bloom.
However, this display at Seaside Gardens in Ventura County put mine in perspective:
|They were all over the South Africa demonstration garden but this was the most expansive display I caught with the small camera I was carrying on this trip|
The single-petaled Osteospermums, one of several species referred to as African daisies, readily self-seed. The double-petaled hybrids that I've been focused on in recent years are short-lived perennials, which don't appear to self-seed.
Single or double-petaled, they're clearly made for coastal Southern California's Mediterranean climate.
