A brighly colored hybrid perfect for containers.
When Spring landscapes are craving bright color, the unique bold yellow of Osteospurmum hybrid 'Voltage Yellow' is sure to stop traffic. Its early flowering, abundant blooms and long bloom period have won rave reviews, including a trial winner at CSU's "Best Of" for 2010. Its size and stature lends itself well as a stand-alone plant in your favorite sun-loving container or hanging basket, though it can also be placed in a sunny, well-drained flower bed with purple salvias, red geraniums or purple fountain grass. While most yellow African Daisies go downhill by the end of July, Voltage Yellow shows the promise of better heat tolerance. It's also deer resistant and attracts butterflies.
