Osteospermum. by chrisiow

Osteospermum.

This clump of Osteospermum has been flowering for a good few weeks and despite the temperature plummeting over the last week it appears to be immune to the chill. I think it gets a bit of protection from being close to a low wall.
Nice range of color.

@joev . The flowers pale as they age so you get an interesting mix of colours.

Ooh they leap out of the page at me! Delightful. The daisy-type shaped flowers are always my favourites

@casablanca . My daughter likes daisy-type flowers but in her case its probably because its one of the few flowers she can recognise 😊 she never did inherit my love of plants. 😊 🌷🌺🌻🌹🌼🌾

They look lovely, at first glance I thought they were Mesembryanthemums
(or is Mesembryanthemum the plural too?) At least you can see some flowers... ours are all covered in snow.

@wintivic . Very true, I was surprised by how much snow you've had it looks quite thick. Where's the global warming when you need it. 😊

@wintivic Haha, can't trust anything these days😊 The lawn is still white, but the roads and pavements are dry now (no snowplough, grit or salt needed!) I'm sure our flowers will reappear very soon 😊

Ha ha, my mother can always reel off the Latin name for things at the drop of a hat. I love plants but sometimes resort to saying things like "those lovely blue ones with the long stamens and spiky bits......."

@casablanca . Well funny you should mention that, my memory isn't as good as it used be I seem to have a few craft moments these days, craft as in can't remember a flaming thing. πŸ˜ƒ

They make a gorgeous show together. They grow well here, too. In fact they are a bit invasive. Great capture of them.

@sangwann . I am rather fond of them but your right, they do tend to pop up everywhere if your not careful.
