Cape Daisy

Cape Daisy - Osteospermum ecklonis (Asteroideae)
From the sunflower family (Asteraceae).
It has been given several common names: African Daisy, South African Daisy, Cape Daisy and Blue-eyed Daisy and the plants prefer a warm and sunny position and rich soil and does not tolerate winter conditions. Perfect for higher altitude Queensland where I found this one.
