WW: Osteospermum Ecklonis, 'Aksis' Nasinga White Daisy Flowers

Osteospermum White Daisy Photo


"People from a planet without flowers would think we must be mad with joy the whole time to have such things about us."
- Iris Murdoch


This unique Cape daisy cultivar looks like it belongs on an alien planet instead of Longwood Gardens. The spoon shape of the flower petals is so strangely beautiful.
