Notes:

Bought at a garden center earlier this year and now I can’t find the plant tag. Would like to know the name, if it is an annual or perennial, if it is an annual (zone 6/7) does it have a bulb, etc. that can be taken inside, if a perennial can it overwinter outside in that pot or should it be planted in the ground? Probably a pretty common plant, but I don’t know it. I sense my over-fertilization has cut the flowering? I do deadhead. Much thanks!

    Maybe Osteospermum Serenity Blue Eyed Beauty. According to sources, it’s a perennial in a warm climate, annual in cooler regions. I have not growing this indoor, but if you have a sunny window, perhaps you could try and see. The second included link will help you further with growing culture. Best wishes! https://garden.org/plants/view/712791/African-Daisy-Osteospermum-ecklonis-Serenity-Blue-Eyed-Beauty/

    I think it’s an Osteospermum, or African Daisy. I doubt that it’s hardy in Ct– though it is hardy i San Diego! Treat it like an annual and enjoy it– try to find another next year if you loved it.
