Day Four: 3 December 2022: White Magic
Although far from perfect and past their best, I discovered this small group of Osteospermum flowers hiding under a mass of Eucomis leaves. They were produced by a plant that had survived the very wet winter of 2021. I have included them in my selection for Cathy’s Week of Flowers beause I admired their shining intensity in a dark part of the garden and the ability of an African daisy to survive a wet Hebridean winter.
The genus name Osteospermum comes from the Greek osteo meaning “bone” and sperma meaning “seed” in reference to the hard seeds.
