Daisy?


When we visited my mother-in-law yesterday, I saw this unusual flower in her garden. Does anyone know what it is? I've never seen anything like it. It's so pretty!!

Hi D....
I think that it is an African Daisy.

USelaine said...

Yes, I think julier is right. Some of them have that "pinwheel" petal characteristic, others do not.

Oh wow, that doesn't even look real. Like Jim said, it looked like an alien plant species.

I do like that flower. I've seen them around here, too. African Daisy does sound right.

I think I'd have to agree w/ Jim, it looks like an import from another planet - but it's absolutely beautiful!!!
