Maintenance Notes: 

Deadheading not necessary for continuous bloom. Plants will "bury their dead" (new flowers will quickly cover old flowers) so no deadheading necessary. Symphony Osteospermum do not like having wet feet and will react badly to constantly wet soil. Be sure to allow soil in containers to get dry on top before watering and only plant Symphony in ground beds with good drainage. While it shouldn't be necessary you can trim your plants with a sharp pair of scissors or pruning shears at any time.

A yearly application of fertilizer or compost on garden beds and regular fertilization of plants in pots will help ensure the best possible performance.

Osteeospurm-m-mum. Sheesh. I wonder who came up with that one. "Osteo" or "African Daisy" is much more "me." In case you didn't know, Symphony Osteos are among the most popular Proven Winners in the world. It's easy to spot a Symphony. We're the ones with the amazing sapphire blue eyes (centers). Just like that actress what's-her-name. Let's see. I bloom nonstop from early spring through fall, and my new flowers quickly cover old ones so you never have to deadhead. I'm Annual except in zones 9 - 11, and do best in full to part sun (heat doesn't bother me a bit). Since I grow between 8 and 12 inches tall, there's room for me even in small spaces.

Besides me, there are four other colors: Melon, Orange, Peach and Vanilla. But Lemon is best. My petals are a clear, soft yellow without the slightest bit of brassiness. I'm a spiller, too. I spill over the sides of hanging baskets, window boxes, etc. It drove my mother plant crazy.
