More info

3D Silver is one in a series of new osteospermums, also called African daisies. The other colours are purple and pink. The flowers on older varieties of osteospermums close at night or on cloudy days, but the 3D series blooms stay open all night. They also stand up better to warmer temperatures, too. What’s most noticeable, however, are the fluffy, full double flowers.
