My African Daisies are beautiful. I have them planted with million bells, purple fountain grass, and blue Mohawk grass in multi colored containers. They serve as fillers for my containers. They have many blooms and continue to produce blooms when the flowers self-deadhead. I'm sad that they are annuals and am trying to figure out how to save them during the winter. I'm in zone 5.

Brights Lights are great in both landscapes and containers.Maintenance Notes:
Deadheading not necessary for continuous bloom. Plants will "bury their dead" (new flowers will quickly cover old flowers) so no deadheading necessary. Bright Lights 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 Bright Lights 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.Bright Lights™ Double Moonglow Osteospermum hybrid 'KLEOE17308' US Utility US8,759,646 and US9,040,792

It grows sideways then up. And I don't have many blooms. I used starter fertilizer and have fertilized it a few times since. I tried it because I saw it on Garden Answer, but Laura's looked much fuller and had way more blooms than mine. I planted it in the ground and in a pot.Ashley, Virginia, United States, 1 year ago
