Perfect Color, Perfect Name!

I must admit that although the color of this osteospermum was perfect for the new flower bed I was putting in under the dining room window in SJC (see how it echos the color of the flax in the background), it was the name that convinced me to put in a whole drift of these tall beauties. The name? Sheila!

You gotta love it. If you ever find a plant named Tina, do let me know:)

Sheila, this plant in this colour is on my wish list. I bought one for my Mum last year but didn't get one for me... silly girl... will do better this year!

Best wishes Sylvia (England)

I'm a huge fan of osteospermums, and that is an exceptionally pretty one! I hope I can find a source:)

You took a very flattering photo of it, too.

I love this plant and you can't pass it up when it has the same name as you! ;)
