Voltage White Osteospermum has bright white blooms that will brighten up any landscape or patio. They bloom a little later and are slightly more compact than Voltage Yellow. Osteospermum have large, colorful, daisy-like blooms. Voltage White is heat tolerant with a very nice mounding habit. Osteospermum blooms will close every evening, and open up again in early morning. Regular deadheading will encourage new blooms, and a light summer pruning may result in a fall flush of blooms after the weather cools off.
Osteospermum may need to be planted in an area that will protect them from the hot afternoon sun. Too much fertilization may cause the stems to become weak and droop. Moist soil is best but make sure it drains well.
