Origin & Breeding History: 'Daossytten' originated from a cross between two un-named, proprietary Osteospermum seedlings designated '04923C' and '04924A', conducted in March 2005 in Odense, Denmark. It was selected in June 2006 from the resulting population of seedlings. The initial selection criteria and objectives of the breeding program were larger, colourful flowers; and healthy, well branched plants with strong bottom leaves.

Tests & Trials: The detailed description of 'Daossytten' is based on the UPOV report of Technical Examination, application number 2010/0799, purchased from the Community Plant Variety Office, Angers, France. The trials were conducted by the Bundessortenamt in Hannover, Germany, in 2011. Colour determinations were made using the 2001 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Colour Chart.
