Here are my O's
Oranges and Lemons Gaillardia. New last season.

Okey Dokey Geranium. I moved this plant to this spot and it went crazy. I sheared it off after the first blooms and it came back like this. I guess it likes this spot. Sally

Uh Uh, 'O'! No Os! I do have a pic which contains some Osteospermum, but they're almost invisible amongst all the other stuff!
I'm sure there are going to be some creative 'Os'.

O's are a bit scanty here.

Ornithogalum(aka Star of Bethlehem), bulbs which bloom in June at about Azalea time.

Oregano.......we have the ornamental types Golden Oregano Image

and
Hopley's Purple

Image

Osteospermum....'Asti White', I think.
