Osteospermum ‘Purple Sun’ is a spectacular evergreen perennial with orange flowers that fade into a deep purple ring that surrounds the heart of the flower. Just like a summer sun setting over the ocean!

Purple Sun produces an abundance of flowers over a long period, from spring to autumn, and will thrive in both full sun or part shade in most climates. It’s a strong, weather tolerant bushy plant that has upright stems and grows to a compact 35cm tall and up to 35cm wide. Perfect for garden beds as well as pots and hanging baskets.

Keep Osteospermum ‘Purple Sun’ happy and flourishing by feeding it with Yates Thrive Roses & Flowers Liquid Plant Food every 1–2 weeks during periods of new leaf growth and flowering.
