Serenity White Bliss Osteospermum
  • Exceptional habit, uniform timing for early-season bench-run production. 
  • “Magic” colors change as flowers fully open – a plus in consumers’ eyes! 
  • Low-energy crop produces full, mounded plants with tighter bench
    spacing, fewer PGRs. 
  • All varieties feature the same excellent branching. 
  • Well-suited to cool-season containers and landscapes: a full-season
    performer in coastal markets.
Peach Magic and Rose Magic rated Excellent Performance at Michigan State University, 2011.
