    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.

    • This plant graces a mostly sunny spot in my garden. Next year, I will give it a bit more shade, but it has done very well in my garden. It's gone through a random week here or there without blooms, but the leaves remain strong and doesn't show heat or sun damage. When it does bloom the color is unusual and I greatly enjoy it's hues mixed amongst yellow daisies.

    • Not hardy at all. Noticed fungus growing on the stem one day and the plant died in a heartbeat. It was beautiful while it lasted, though.

    • Although I fertilized them along with other plants in the container, the blooms got smaller in size as season progressed.
