“Gone are the days when the good old osteospermums only came in pink, white and purple in plain old single glowers”, writes Jeremy Critchley in the trade magazine Hort Journal Australia. “Osteospermum 3D has arrived and offers a completely new concept in the competitive osteospermum market.” One of the main reasons why 3D’s are so useful is according to Critchley the fact that the flowers can’t close in low light conditions thanks to the abundance of ray florets in the centre of the flower. “Once these flowers are open, they stay open.”
One of the toughest plants
The author memorizes that 3Ds are bred for European conditions. However, these osteo’s are one of the toughest plants Critchley grows at The Green Gallery. “We recommend them for customers who want bright perennial colour in difficult and extreme condition places.” The Green Gallery supplies premium potted perennials based in Sydney (Australia).
The 3D series is bred by German breeder Selecta one.
