Asteraceae Fortnight Part 1-Radiate Heads: Dimorphotheca pluviatis or Osteospermum ecklonis?? from Delhi-GS55 : Attachments (2). 3 posts by 2 authors
This plant grown as ornamental in Delhi, a tall erect herb up to 50 cm tall with white ray florets purple beneath, I had thought to be Osteospermum ecklonis, till I found real O. ecklonis in California with low shrubby habit, smaller and broader leaves and azure-blue disc.
Typical Dimorphotheca pluvialis has broader yellow disc, whereas the above plant has narrower blue disc.
Please give your opinion about its identity.
To me it fairly matches with O.ecklomis.
Bailey (1949) in Manual of Cultivated Plants has mentioned it as shrub and subshrub but Graf (1992) in Hortica has mentioned it as subshrub perennial with blackish blue disc, broad ray florets white on surface, purplish beneath. Other varieties may have yellow ray florets or white spatulate ray florets.
Since it is a cultivated taxon it may have variations which are desirable and selected as new cultivars. Many a time cultivated plants may defy the limits we assign to them. That is what I can say here Sir!

Dimorphotheca pluvialis only. The annual erect habit, sinuate-dentate leaves are distinctive enough. It is commonly grown as potted annual plant. Disc florets often get tipped with purple.
agree with … not osteospermum
