    Can someone tell me the correct name of this flower I love it and want one but I live in Texas. Someone sent me the picture and said it was from the Botanical Gardens in Canada.

    And just to clarify - there's more than one botanical garden in Canada.

    Oh My

    I grow them every summer as an annual

    Love them

    They are called spoon-- something. The name leaves me

    The spoon name comes from the shape of the petals as a spoon
    They should be a perennial in Texas

    Osteospermum hates a typical Hot Humid Texas
    Summer so it's a Winter or Spring plant for us.
