African daisy is suited for covering large open areas of level or sloping ground. It requires little attention and is rarely invaded by pests or diseases. It grows best in rich soil and full sun, and established plants tolerate drought. The plant spreads rapidly by means of long, trailing stems that root where they touch the ground. Trailing African daisy makes an attractive carpet about 18 inches high with leaves 1 to 2 inches long. Also, attractive grown at the top of a retaining wall or container where it can hang down gracefully. The daisy-like blooms are about 3 inches across.
Some authors have classified as a Tripteris subgenus of Osteospermum, but more recent studies support separating it as a distinct genus.
