Delightful white daisies flushed with rose-pink that deepen as they age, opening in sun. On dull days the grey-blue backs are still interesting! Bushy habit for well drained soil in a sheltered sunny spot. 30cm.
More or less hardy in most of the UK as long as it has that well drained soil and gets plenty of sun, it's been in Beth Chatto's garden in Essex for years.
'Lady Leitrim' has a slightly more upright and less sprawling habit than some of the other hardy forms of Osteospermum, or Dimorphotheca as they used to be called.
Synonym; Osteospermum 'Pale Face'.
