Cape Marguerite Overview
Osteospermum ecklonisis, commonly known as Cape Marguerite, or African daisy, is native to Africa and parts of the Arabian peninsula. This evergreen species have aromatic, simple foliage with rugged margins and showy daisy-like, pink or white flowers. This plant is a perennial species but may be grown effectively as an annual to add temporary colour to a garden. A collection of these plants in full bloom certainly creates a stunning show in any garden! It was until recently classified as Dimorphotheca ecklonis and is still occasionally found for sale with that name.
