The common name African daisy has been applied to almost every plant in the aster family that has come to horticulture from South Africa. The name has been used for Gerbera, Osteospermum, Arctotis and Dimorphotheca interchangeably, so we should think of it more as descriptive of a large group of plants, not one single genus. With this broad linguistic sweep, we gain hundreds of lively and colorful groundcovers and tender shrubs wonderfully adapted to our Missouri summer gardens. Visit any nursery or garden center today, and you will meet many of these excellent South African selections.
Oceano Bistro in Chesterfield is going through some more changes. It's been announced that the restaurant has been purchased by an investor group and will be reopening on Friday, May 9, as Bishop's Post. The moniker is a combo of the names of managing partner BEN BISHOP and Chesterfield pioneer Justus Post, who once owned the land the eatery sits on. Chef DAVE ROOK, who recently took over the Oceano kitchen, will remain in the post of executive chef. The new menu is described as being classic, traditional fare. The Clayton Oceano Bistro was not affected by the sale and will remain as-is.
