Osteospermum 'Shire Pink'


Plant Information

Aspect: Full Sun
Soil Type: Well-Drained
Colour: Pink

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 hardy and perennial (come back year after year) unless otherwise specified in the description.
  • Every plant we sell is sold established in at least a 9cm pot, although many are in bigger pots. Unlike some nurseries, we do not sell plug plants because these require ongoing care when you receive them. Our plants can be planted in your garden as soon as you receive them, or they can be left in their pots for several weeks until you are ready to plant them.
  • As we grow everything ourselves and cannot just buy more stock when levels are low, there will be times when certain varieties are unavailable until the next batch has grown on.
  • We are not technically 'organic' but, as far as possible, we limit the use of pesticides and chemicals. We are fortunate enough to be situated in the countryside and we enjoy the environment and natural world that surrounds us, so we do what we reasonably can to protect it.
  • For a limited time we are offering free delivery for orders over £50.
If you have any questions about our plants, please feel free to contact us and we'll be happy to help.
