This is more than likely Osteospermum jucundum, or a selection or hybrid of it. The kinds sold in the trade are newer, improved types and the old kind is not often sold. You might have a better chance at plant sales, or try ot get a piece from someone.

It was hit by frost in many gardens last winter.
