Osteospermum Weetwood - where to put it?

Just bought one of these in the reduced section at the garden centre - it doesn't have a tag so I've no idea where to plant it. Only went in for sawdust!



I think I might be inclined to overwinter in a cold greenhouse as it doesn't like to much wet... let's see what others have to say

I've potted mine up and put in greenhouse, which will have some heat over the winter....they will get very little or no water during this time, just enough to keep from being bone dry.

I'd agree, Mg - the only Osteospermum I've found to be reliably hardy is O. jucundum. I have tried others that say they are hardy, but as you rightly say, they don't like winter wet!
