OSTEOSPERMUM JUCUNDUM COMPACTUM
Coming from South Africa, Osteospermums will absolutely thrive in hot, dry, neglected conditions, preferring full sun with free-draining soil, yet remain some of longest-flowering plants in the garden. This variety is particularly garden worthy being early flowering and compact in outdoor conditions. The dazzling florets finally age from mauve-pink to magenta-purple and are wonderful if placed in the front of a dry sunny border, or if established over a wall and allowed to trail.
For best results, sow seeds in good light at any time onto a good soil-based compost. Cover the seeds with fine grit or compost to approximately their own depth. We recommend germinating at 15 to 20 degrees C. Seeds should ideally germinate in between 2 and 6 weeks although they make take considerably longer. Pot on seedlings before finally planting out into a well-drained spot, or even a large container.
