Osteospermum ‘Voltage™ Yellow’ (Osteospermum ecklonis ‘Balvoyelo’)
Commonly known as African Daisies, Osteospermum ‘Voltage™ Yellow’s vibrant colors shout SPRING! This outstanding perennial’s bright yellow flowers heralds in the coming spring by being one of the first of its kind to bloom. Not only is ‘Voltage™ Yellow’ an early bloomer, it continues to bloom well into summer and fall. When mass planted, the vibrant yellow makes a stunning display. It also is beautiful when companion-planted in a container or hanging basket with Viola ‘Penny White’ and Lobelia ‘Sapphire Trailing’.
‘Voltage™ Yellow’ has a compact-full growth habit, and reaches 12-15” tall x 18-24” wide at maturity. It is both rabbit and deer resistant…now that is a very good thing!!! It is fairly drought tolerant once established, but to be honest, it looks much nicer when given regular irrigation. It will benefit from a late summer pruning to promote new growth and bountiful blooms through autumn.
It is hardy to 32°F, and the Sunset Western Climate Zones are 8, 9, 12-24. Elsewhere treat as an Annual. Plant in full sun and use in landscape beds, on slopes for soil retention, in rock gardens, cottage gardens, city gardens and coastal gardens.
