Osteospermum-Cape Marigold, African Daisy. This All-America Selection from 1999 did much better in Dickinson than in Fargo. The saturated soil in Fargo caused 11 of 12 plants to die by July. The one surviving plant was dead by the September evaluation. In Dickinson, however, this was one of the top performers in July with good bloom and vigor.
