Osteospermum perennial flowers that can survive winter in regions with mild climates. The more they’re sheltered and protected from the cold, the higher the chance of keeping them year after year.
This is preferably done in spring. You may also plant in fall if winters in your region are reliably mild.
Be careful because the plant is vulnerable to freezing below 23°F (-5°C) and it cannot survive temperatures that are lower than that.
That doesn’t mean it can’t be grown; it just means you’ll have to grow it like annuals, sowing new ones every year in spring.
- Space plants 12 to 16 inches (30 to 40 cm) apart.
- Choose a sun-bathed area that is also sheltered from wind since wind makes the air cooler.
