Osteospermum Snow White
Osteospermums (African Daisies) are a hardy frost and drought tolerant plant and will grow in any climate. This variety self seeded amongst the parent plants and appears to be the albino version of the Osteospermum. I have carefully propagated it and have been waiting for it to flower again to take photos so I can add to my collection and I can now safely say it is now available and true to form. I am not sure if there are any like it out there in the market as google search did not come up with any definative results, so it could be a rare hybrid. With all the colourful range in the Osteospermums in the market it is good to have one that is as pure as true as this one.
Osteospermums have an abundance of flowers most of the year round, predominantly from spring through to autumn. Being compact and bushy they are ideal for containers, patios, baskets or landscape gardens. It is an ideal plant for any garden.

For cuttings you will receive:
-3 x healthy cuttings (no roots) that will strike easily once planted. Advantages are you get 3 plants in 1.
For tube stock you will receive: *(Important please read) *
1 x younger rooted cutting, these will be 8cm x 4cm tube pots. Plant size will be 2cm x 3.5cm (any larger and they will be root bound in the tube pots). Basically, they are juvenile cuttings that are 3-4 weeks into propagation and are starting to show signs of root strike and new leaf development. These are juvenile plants and NOT well-established plants. If you are looking for an established plant with a well-developed root system and multiple leaf growth, please select from the potted range (see below) or use the ‘inform me when in stock’ feature. For buyers on the ebay store please inbox us for details on availability.
Why do I sell tube stock? The advantage to tube stock is that they have a better success rate than cuttings as they are already showing signs of root strike. They are a lower cost than potted plants so multiple can be purchased for the same cost of 1 potted plant. If you purchase tube stock, please be aware of the plant/pot sizes given above. If you prefer a more established plant, please choose from the potted range (sizing for potted below).
For Potted plants you will receive:
-1 x Plant in a lightweight flexible pot. These pots are used to save freight costs and ease of packaging (round pots and don’t fit well in in square boxes). This pot’s function is meant to be a temporary home but will do quite nicely until they are acclimatized, and you are ready to plant into more stable potting. No need to re-pot immediately saving plant stress!
Potted plants come in 3 sizes, please note carefully what you can expect below:
Small pot – pot size is 10 x 8cm. Plant size will be a minimum 5cm up to 10cm. Roots will be well established (but not root bound). These will still be baby plants but growing rapidly with a healthy root/leaf system. Plants will have at least 4 healthy leaves and possibly more depending on the growth stage.
Medium pot – pot size is 11 x 10cm. Plant size will be 10cm up to 15cm. Several leaves or branches will be on the plant with multiple new shoots growing, showing medium to advanced development.
Large pot – pot size is 15 x 12cm. Plant size will be 15cm to 25cm. Multiple branches and new growth. Advanced development stage.
As plants are grown in different timeframes and stages, they will not be uniform in size but will fit under the size chart given above.
Please consider these sizing guides before buying as I will not refund for issues regarding disappointment about the plant sizing unless they are not as described above. If they are not as you purchased, then they will fall under the 100% satisfaction guarantee and you will be issued a replacement or refund.
