Osteospermum 'Soprano Light Purple’
Synonyms: African Daisy, 'Osjammlipur'
This is another in the ‘Soprano’ series of Osteospermum and it was truly the only plant ready now for the landscape at the huge annual farm (acres and acres of flowers). Very soft color that looks a little white along with the purple shadings. This hybrid is a little shorter than most at 8-14 inches tall. It would make a nice carpet of soft color.
Today it’s back to work. I’ll be looking for some more ‘finished’ annuals but have a feeling no one really has anything yet. We were down in Manhattan yesterday and it is amazing how stuff is out in bloom compared to our more northern region. The plantings will just have to wait.
