African Daisy, Cape Daisy, Osteospermum;
 
Low perennial herb or almost a subshrub usually less than 60 cm tall with alternate 5-8 cm long obovate to oblanceolate leaves, somewhat remotely toothed, pubescent; heads solitary on long peduncles, 5-7 cm n diam.; ray florets pale purple to almost white above, purple beneath with white margin; disc small in size with sterile florets, azure-blue; achenes straight, hard without pappus. 
 
Osteospermum ecklonis from Delhi: Osteospermum ecklonis (DC.) Norl., Studies in the Calenduleae I. 244. 1943
Syn: Dimorphotheca ecklonis DC.
Common names:: Vanstaden's river daisy, Cape Marguerite
There seems to be lot of confusion about the accepted name. GRIN considers Dimorphotheca ecklonis DC. as accepted. To confuse things further The Plant List considers both as accepted names. Wikipedia mentions that perennial species of Dimophotheca are placed in Osteospermum, and finally the ITIS, considered to be the most reliable database considers Osteospermum ecklonis as accepted name.
The species is differentiated from species of Dimorphotheca in perennial habit, smaller azure-blue disc and overlapping ray florets.
Low perennial herb or almost a subshrub usually less than 60 cm tall with alternate 5-8 cm long obovate to oblanceolate leaves, somewhat remotely toothed, pubescent; heads solitary on long peduncles, 5-7 cm n diam.; ray florets pale purple to almost white above, purple beneath with white margin; disc small in size with sterile florets, azure-blue; achenes straight, hard without pappus.

Osteospermum ecklonis from California GSMAY2016/04 : 2 posts by 2 authors. Attachments (2)
Osteospermum ecklonis (DC.) Norf.
In my previous post, there was some mix up of O jucundum and O. ecklonis, and both in Delhi photograph. I am now uploading them separately.
Osteospermum (some times merged with Dimorphotheca) is distinct in having pernennial plants often shrubby, disc florets sterile and style branches very short Dimorphotheca with usually tall annual herbs, disc florets fertile and style branches long.
O. ecklonis is a subshrub, 5-7 cm across heads with rays white purple beneath with often white margin, disc florets azure blue,
O. jucundum, perennial herbs, heads 5 cm across, ray florets pale red (cerise) paler beneath, disc florets dark purple.
