Cultivar in botanical garden
- Osteospermum 'Pink Whirligig'
- African daisy 'Pink Whirls'
The flowers of this African daisy are striking pink pinwheels. Circling a central disc, the petals are broad at the base, then tubular, then broad at the tip, like little spoons. Frequently grown as an annual ‘Pink Whirls’ is descended from a perennial native to South Africa that is favored by breeders in search of showy flowers for gardens and greenhouses.
