For some easy-to-care-for annual color, the Bright Lights™ Horizon™ Sunset African Daisy could be just the answer. Not only does it produce an abundance of salmon orange and lavender blue flowers, but it blooms all season long. Growing to around 1 foot tall, this Osteospermum hybrid is ideal for squeezing into a tight spot and providing an injection of color to your garden.

With its origins in Africa, the Bright Lights™ Horizon™ Sunset African Daisy is commonly grown as an annual but can be cultivated as a perennial in warmer parts. Being heat tolerant, it will thrive over the summer and keep flowering until the first frosts. Forming a mounded habit, this African Daisy is perfect for growing in the front of a border, but it works equally well when planted in a container, hanging basket or trough. 

Bright Lights™ Horizon™ Sunset African Daisy Care

A huge bonus of the Bright Lights™ Horizon™ Sunset African Daisy is that it does not require any deadheading, as its new blooms simply cover the old ones. African daisies do not tolerate soggy or waterlogged soil so good drainage is a must. Along with being planted in either full sun or partial sun, you can help encourage new blooms all season long by feeding this plant with a slow-release fertilizer in spring, or a liquid feed every 2 to 4 weeks when growing in containers. Pruning is not strictly required, although you can lightly trim your plant to shape for a neat and tidy appearance. 

Although commonly planted as an annual, the Bright Lights™ Horizon™ Sunset African Daisy can be grown as a perennial in zones 9 to 11. It is perfect for containers, but will require more frequent watering in a pot than when grown directly in the ground.  

Bright Lights™ Horizon™ Sunset African Daisy Spacing

The Bright Lights™ Horizon™ Sunset African Daisy grows to 8 to 12 inches high and 10 to 18 inches wide. For an impressive block of color, you can plant this African daisy out in a group at a spacing of 6 to 10 inches apart.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
