General Information

O. fruticosum 'Whirligig'
Trailing African Daisy - Strange Exotic Flower
This flower starts out like a normal daisy, but after it blooms the petals start to curl over, creating the Whiligig look.
I've found this flower on-line, but many were calling it the "Blue Bell Tunicate", which is incorrect.
This is an extremely exotic looking flower. How very strange and creative it is.
Spreads rapidly from cuttings.
Osteospermum means Bone-Seeds.
