Akila Grand Canyon Mix osteospermum is a formulated blend of 2-3 in. daisy-like flowers in shades of cream, lavender, purple, rose-red, white, and yellow. Plants form 18 in. mounds which bloom early summer into fall. Osteospermums respond well to deadheading to extend the flowering season, especially in mild winter climates, where osteospermums withstand light frost.
