Sunny Felix African Daisy
Osteospermum 'Sunny Felix'
Synonyms: Cape Daisy, Freeway Daisy
The Osteospermum are really starting to come out and making a colorful patchwork of color alongside the roads and in gardens. This is one of the few named ones that I have seen. It was introduced in 2005 by Proven Winners. The patent stated this about ‘Sunny Felix’:
“A new distinct cultivar of Osteospermum plant named ‘Sunny Felix’, characterized by its white ray florets with a small, but distinct violet-blue spot, violet-blue to gray-purple disc florets, dark green foliage, long ray florets measuring about 37 mm in length, and more leaves and shorter petioles than the typical Osteospermum variety.”

There have been a couple of other posts about this flower on this site. I like them a lot but they need to make a more heat resistant plant.
I just wanted to say thanks to all the people that have been reading this blog and to those that have been leaving comments. You really keep me going and keep me striving to take good pictures. This site continues to be an adventure and learning experience for me.
