Plant Details

This hardy African Daisy has been growing in our garden for many years and we have now propagated it and given it a name. It has come through many winters, including the 'Beast from the East' 2017/18 winter so appears to be fully hardy. It has very pale pink flowers, which appear white from a distance. The tips of the petals look like they have been lightly dipped in darker pink ink.

Osteospermums come from Southern Africa and vary greatly in hardiness, with many having to be grown as annuals in the UK. 'Shire Pink' appears to be fully hardy however. They provide a splash of colour over a long season. They need a sunny position and are very drought tolerant when established.

Can be planted in the border or in large containers.

Height: 30cm

Common name(s): African Daisy; Cape Marigold

All our plants are supplied in 9x10cm pots unless otherwise specified. Plants in this size pot establish quickly in the garden and often outpace plants in bigger pots planted at the same time. We do not sell 'plug plants' because those need to be grown on before planting. Our potted plants can be planted immediately, unless otherwise noted, or you can leave them in their pots until you are ready to plant. We grow everything we sell ourselves, in our nursery in the Buckinghamshire countryside.
